Cade Apsay

Position: Quarterback

Height: 6-foot-1

Weight: 195 pounds

Year: Freshman

Numbers: Last week, Apsay took over for injured starter Sefo Liufau and went 18-for-23 for 128 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to USC. His completion percentage (.783) was the second-best single-game percentage in CU history (minimum 20 attempts). On the year, he's completed 73.5 percent of his passes (25 of 34) for 199 yards.

Potential impact vs. WSU: With Liufau out for the season, Apsay will make his first career start on Saturday. If he can be composed in the pocket and maintain his accuracy, he can give the Buffs a chance to win.

He said it: "(Liufau) has been awesome in helping me prepare. He's been a great help. I have had some problems with my own confidence, and he's helped me boost that."
