Washington makes change at QB
College football notes » Miles gets job after suspension.
First Published Sep 01 2014 11:14 pm • Last Updated Sep 01 2014 11:14 pm

After a lackluster offensive showing in its opener, No. 25 Washington will have a different quarterback for coach Chris Petersen’s home debut.

Cyler Miles gets the start against Eastern Washington, Petersen announced on Monday. The sophomore replaces Jeff Lindquist, who struggled to move the offense for most of Washington’s 17-16 win at Hawaii. Miles was suspended for spring camp and the season’s first game for his involvement in two assaults the night of the Super Bowl in February. He wasn’t charged in the incidents.

Miles was the favorite to win the starting job before the off-field troubles. He made a spot start against Oregon State a year ago and completed 15 of 22 passes for 162 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in guiding the Huskies to a win.

Baylor QB injured

Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty has two cracked small bones in his back. Petty had an MRI on Monday, a day after taking an early shot to his back and playing only the first half of the 10th-ranked Bears’ season-opening 45-0 win over SMU.

The diagnosis was two cracked transverse processes, small bones that stick out from each side of a vertebra.

Coach Art Briles said during the Big 12 coaches teleconference that Petty was day to day. Baylor is home Saturday night against Northwestern State.

Urban Meyer has heard others say his team is too young, or that it was crippled by the loss of two-time Big Ten player of the year Braxton Miller. He doesn’t buy it.

After the fifth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes came back from a slow start to beat Navy 34-17 on Saturday, Meyer said he doesn’t want to hear anything more about inexperience or adversity.

"They’re veteran players now," he said Monday of those who saw their first college action in the opener. "Enough with the excuses and get going."

The Buckeyes trailed 7-6 midway through the third quarter. But they pulled away late behind some big plays by the defense and by Miller’s replacement at quarterback, freshman J.T. Barrett.
