Washington vs. Colorado: Nick Hirschman questionable with concussion

Christian Petersen

The sophomore quarterback completed 12 of 13 passes against the Arizona Wildcats before leaving the game with a head injury.

In Saturday's loss to the Arizona Wildcats, sophomore Nick Hirschman played very well, but suffered a concussion that forced him to leave the game and his status for Saturday's game against the No. 25 Washington Huskies is now listed as questionable.

Prior to leaving the game, Hirschman completed 12-of-13 passes for 123 yards, although his sole incompletion was an interception to Tra'Mayne Bondurant in Arizona territory. Regardless, the sophomore quarterback led the Buffaloes on their two most time-consuming drives of the season.

In his place, Connor Wood completed 4 of 7 passes for 90 yards that included a 71-yard touchdown pass to Scott Fernandez. Wood is likely to be the starter in the event that Hirschman does not pass his concussion test, which would be the first career start for the sophomore.

The Buffaloes have just two more home games against Washington and Utah to avoid becoming the first team in school history since 1920 to go an entire season without a home victory.
