QB Wood Wins Starting Job For Buffaloes

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Connor Wood emerged from spring ball as the Colorado Buffaloes’ starting quarterback for the second straight season. Unlike last year, he kept that title in the fall, fending off flashy freshman Sefo Liufau.

The junior who transferred from Texas two years ago will be lining up under center Sunday when the Buffaloes begin their new era against Colorado State, which will name its staring QB on Thursday, in the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Last year’s starter, Jordan Webb, is dealing with a knee injury and an assault charge. Nick Hirschman transferred to Akron and Shane Dillon gave up the gridiron for the hardwood, opening the door for Wood, who played in seven games last season and started against Washington.
