Colorado has only played two games this season while every other Pac-12 Conference team has played at least three, but true freshman linebacker Addison Gillam leads the conference in tackles per game.

Gillam is averaging 10.5 tackles a game through the first two games of his career. He is the only player in the conference averaging double digit tackles per game to this point.

Needless to say, it's a pretty impressive start for a true freshman. Gillam became only the second player in CU history to start the season opener as a true freshman at inside linebacker earlier this month.

Gillam joins wide receiver Paul Richardson among Buffs leading the Pac-12 in statistical category. Richardson leads the conference in all-purpose yards per game and receiving yards per game with 208.5 yards per game in each category.
