Previous 25 QB Notes Next 25 QB Notes
10/20/18- Brett Rypien, Sr, Boise State, 6-2, 203
Brett Rypien threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns to lead Boise State over Colorado State 56-28 on Friday night. Boise State (5-2, 3-1 Mountain West), which had to rally from a 35-10 halftime deficit last season against the Rams, flipped the script this time in racing out to a 35-7 halftime lead and never looked back. Colorado State (3-5, 2-2) was its own worst enemy, turning the ball over three times and giving up a wild punt return for a touchdown. K.J. Carta-Samuels was 19-of-30 passing for 238 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. In the first half, the Broncos' offense was so efficient that the only third down it failed to convert occurred when Rypien stumbled over his own feet after taking a snap under center. But that was about the only miscue he had in finishing with the same number of touchdowns as incompletions (22 of 26 passing). - AP College Football

10/19/18- Khalil Tate, Jr, Arizona, 6-1, 215
QB Khalil Tate will miss Saturday's game against UCLA because of an ankle injury, head coach Kevin Sumlin announced. Tate, a junior, has been dealing with the injury since a Sept. 8 game against Houston and has been ineffective after beginning the season as a Heisman Trophy favorite. In seven games, Tate has completed 95 of 178 passes for 1,415 yards and 11 touchdowns with four interceptions, and he has rushed 112 yards after running for 1,411 yards last season.

10/19/18- Rhett Rodriguez, , Arizona, 6-0, 190
QB Rhett Rodriguez, son of former Wildcat coach Rich Rodriguez, will start in place of injured Khalil Tate against UCLA on Saturday night head coach Kevin Sumlin announced.

He has completed 26 of 45 passes for 275 yards and one touchdown this season.

10/19/18- K.J. Costello, rJr, Stanford, 6-4, 215
K.J. Costello threw for 231 yards and a touchdown, and Stanford remained in the thick of the Pac-12 North Division race with a 20-13 win over Arizona State on Thursday night. Stanford (5-2, 3-1) needed a half to get its offense fully rolling off a bye week, held to a pair of field goals in the first half. The Cardinal put together a pair of impressive drives in the third quarter and had a 16-minute advantage in time of possession to tie No. 14 Washington atop the Pac-12 North. Arizona State (3-4, 1-3) was held to a field goal in the first half before Manny Wilkins scrambled for a 10-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to pull the Sun Devils within 20-13. Arizona State got the ball back at its own 16 -yard line with 2:20 left, but couldn't get off a final play from Stanford's 20 after a short gain. Wilkins threw for 353 yards, but the Sun Devils turned it over three times, including one on a failed trick play, to lose for the fourth time in five games. Neither offense could gain much traction in the first half. - AP College Football

10/18/18- Justice Hansen, rSr, Arkansas State, 6-3, 224
Justice Hansen threw three touchdown passes and ran for two scores, helping Arkansas State beat Georgia State 51-35 on Thursday night. Hansen had four touchdowns in the first half three passing, one rushing to help Arkansas State build a 34-7 lead. He finished 17-of-28 passing for 257 yards and carried it 11 times for 76 yards. Hansen set a school record on the first drive of the game with his 68th career touchdown pass, moving past Ryan Aplin?(2009-12). Warren Wand's 91-yard kickoff return set up Hansen's 8-yard sneak for a 13-7 lead. Hansen followed a 33-yard sneak with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jonathan Adams Jr. to make it 20-7 at the end of the first quarter. Marcel Murray added 115 rushing yards and a touchdown for Arkansas State (4-3, 1-2 Sun Belt). Dan Ellington had 250 yards passing and three touchdowns for Georgia State (2-5, 1-2). Tamir Jones' first catch of the season went for a 36-yard touchdown to tie it at 7. Ellington threw for his second touchdown, a 37-yarder to Cornelius McCoy, in the third quarter to pull to 34-14. - AP College Football

10/16/18- Rhett Rodriguez, , Arizona, 6-0, 190
QB Rhett Rodriguez, the son of former Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, will make his first career start Saturday at UCLA after coach Kevin Sumlin praised his relief effort at Utah. Rhett Rodriguez won't wow with his arm or physical skills, but he has a high football IQ, is likely to make the right pre-snap reads and then understand where to go with the ball.

10/16/18- Khalil Tate, Jr, Arizona, 6-1, 215
QB Khalil Tate will not play Saturday at UCLA after aggravating an ankle injury early in last week's loss at Utah, coach Kevin Sumlin said Tuesday. Tate originally injured his left ankle in the second game against Houston and has been limited at times since then.

10/16/18- Kyler Murray, rJr, Oklahoma, 5-10, 195
QB Kyler Murray has thrown at least three touchdown passes in each of the last five games. He's one of only six FBS quarterbacks averaging 200 or more passing yards and 50 or more rushing yards. Murray's 294.0 passing average is the best of that group by far, as are his 21 touchdown passes.
