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.
