Fall camp is officially in the rear view mirror, and it's now time for the Bulldogs to prepare for an opponent.


"As far as him taking the first snap or the first snap of this game, he will be in there," coach Jeff Tedford said of Chason Virgil.

Tedford spoke for the first time Monday since announcing that red shirt sophomore Chason Virgil will be the starting quarterback for Saturday's home opener.

"I think Chanson's knowledge and consistency through camp, his experience here gave him the nod," Tedford said. "He hasn't done anything not to deserve that. But it's been very, very competitive. We are in a good position to have three really good quarterbacks."

The Bulldogs host Incarnate Word on Saturday, an FCS school from San Antonio, Texas that finished with a 3-8 record last season.

"It's not so much about them. Are they going to do exactly what we saw on tape last year, maybe, maybe not?" Tedford said. "Game time is the fun time to cut it loose and want to bring some energy."

There will be plenty of energy in the stadium Saturday night with the return of Derek Carr. His number will be retired at halftime and the debut of Tedford as the 'Dogs head coach.

"Anytime you go through eight months of building something like this, with as much passion and energy we've had, it's going to mean a lot to us," he said. "So I know we will all be ready to go on Saturday."

As for the uniforms, the 'Dogs will wear on Saturday night. Coach Tedford keeping that a mystery. Telling us only that they will have red in the uniforms.
