BOULDER — Colorado is in the midst of a quarterback competition for the second-consecutive season.

This time around, freshman Brendon Lewis has a 50-50 chance to win the job. That wasn’t the case in 2020, when he was relegated to third-team reps while Colorado’s more-experience signal-callers dueled it out.

“It was hard,” Lewis said Saturday, the first day that the quarterbacks spoke with reporters during fall camp. “I would say it was hard but I’d say the biggest thing I got out of that was watching Sam (Noyer) and Tyler (Lytle) in there and getting mental reps. That’s the biggest thing is getting mental reps so that when you go in there you’re not confused and don’t know what to do.”
