Two weeks ago, Colorado quarterback Sefo Liufau went down with an ankle injury in the Buffaloes’ loss to the Michigan Wolverines. He didn’t play in the team’s upset win over Oregon on Saturday and head coach Mike MacIntyre is not yet ready to make a decision on their quarterback going into Saturday’s game against Oregon State.
Nick Kosmider of the Denver Post reported MacIntyre’s comments on their starting quarterback going into Saturday’s game. He said that Liufau is not yet fully healthy and hasn’t yet been cleared to play this weekend.
Steven Montez, who won PAC-12 Offensive Player of the Week honors, started in the Buffaloes’ win over the Ducks on Saturday and he had a great showing for the team. He threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns against two interceptions while rushing for 135 yards and another score, so he seems more than capable to face off against the Beavers on Saturday.
So far on the season, Liufau is 54-76 with 768 yards and six touchdowns against no interceptions while also rushing for 124 yards and touchdown. I am sure the team would love to have the senior back on the field this weekend, but Montez has proven is ready to lead the team into their game against the visiting Beavers.
The two teams face off in Boulder on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. EST on PAC-12 Network.
