Who will be the Buff's No. 1 and No. 2 QB?

Going into fall camp Buff Nation knew that there were four quarterbacks competing for either the starting job or especially the No. 2 and 3 positions on the signal caller depth chart. Now after 15 practices and the regular season less than 15 days away, the battle at quarterback may be heating up some. Go "Inside" to see what OC Brian Lindgren had to say about today's scrimmage.

Going into fall camp Buff Nation knew that there were four quarterbacks competing for either the starting job or especially the No. 2 and 3 positions on the signal caller depth chart.

Now after 15 practices and the regular season less than 15 days away, the battle at quarterback may be heating up some.

Most expect Connor Wood, a junior transfer from the University of Texas to be the starter, especially after the spring camp he had.

Now enters true freshman Sefo Liufau.

Liufau completed a couple of long plays, including a 64 yard touchdown to Paul Richardson during Saturday morning's scrimmage and now has fans and media talking about the possibility of him competing for the starting job.

Colorado's new Head Football Coach Mike MacIntyre was asked his thoughts on Liufau following today's practice.

"Sefo has done well," MacIntyre said. "He has a lot of tools to be a really, really good football player. I'm excited about what he has done so far in camp."

Wood has the experience factor, Sefo may be making a bid to be the No. 2 guy and to push the elder signal caller throughout the season.

New Buff Offensive Coordinator Brian Lindgren spoke to the media following Saturday's scrimmage to explain his and the offensive staff's approach deciding the pecking order on the QB depth chart.

"We will watch the film and evaluate who gives us the best chance to be successful," Lindgren said. We will also make a decision on who is the No. 2 and No. 3 guy."

Lindgren saw things from all four quarterbacks that pleased him.

"There definitely were some good things by all four of them today," Lindgren said. "Overall we have to do a better job on our completion percentages, there were some passes we missed that we have to complete, especially on third downs."

MacIntyre praised the offense, especially on a 2:00 minute drill.

"The offense did a really good job on one of the two minute drives," MacIntyre said. They made some great plays on that drive."

Lindgren was asked if the Buff's offense tempo would be decided or effected by which quarterback is running the offense. "I would like to think that everyone can run the offense at the same pace," Lindgren said. "I think all four of them can run at the pace we want to play at."

Liufau threw the first touchdown, connecting with Paul Richardson for a 64 yard scoring play. Junior college transfer Jordan Gehrke threw a touchdown pass to D.D. Goodson and Stevie Joe Dorman connected with Jordan Murphy on a one yard score.

Wood led the offensive unit on the successful 2 minute scoring drive.

No other stats are allowed to be shared with the media, also during our regular season game day coverage we will have a more in-depth notebook breaking down notable plays and contributions by offensive players.
