Nick Hirschman ready for Colorado QB competition in 2013

Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

Colorado quarterback Nick Hirschman had some success in his two starts, but the sophomore was plagued by turnovers just like fellow CU signal-callers Jordan Webb and Connor Wood. Still, all three are slated to participate in an offseason battle for the 2013 starting QB job, along with redshirt freshman Shane Dillon.

Sophomore quarterback Nick Hirschman is already looking forward to competing for the Colorado Buffaloes' starting job next season, writes Buffzone.com's Brian Howell.

Hirschman finished the year with mixed results in the Buffs' 42-35 loss to the Utah Utes. He completed 30 of 51 passes for 306 yards and a touchdown, but he also threw four interceptions against the Utes, who came into the game with just four on the season. Hirschman also ran for a touchdown while leading the Buffs to a 28-20 lead through three quarters, an advantage that disappeared in the fourth when Utah outscored Colorado, 22-7.

Hirschman entered the season in a three-way battle for the CU's starting quarterback job with Jordan Webb and Connor Wood. Webb received the majority of the playing time, throwing for 1,434 yards and eight touchdowns in nine starts. Wood received one start and played in six games, totaling 264 yards, a touchdown and four interceptions.

On the season, Hirschman completed 59.1 percent of his passes, throwing for 593 yards and two touchdowns across seven games, including two starts. He was intercepted seven times.

Hirschman, Webb and Wood will join redshirt freshman Shane Dillon in Colorado's quarterback competition this offseason.
