Bulldogs QB competition re-opens with 3 games remaining

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Thursday's 30-16 loss to Nevada ended the Bulldogs chances at becoming bowl eligible and also re-opened the quarterback competition.

"Kilton struggled last week, last couple of weeks actually, he keeps competing, he has an internal drive that's impressive, but he has to be more efficient," said head coach Tim DeRuyter. He added, "I thought Zack did some decent things the other day when we got down a couple of scores, he throws the ball better typically. As we look at Hawaii's defense and how they are defending people, we will make a determination as to which skill set will be better to attack and they may both play."

Coach DeRuyter said he doesn't plan on announcing a starting quarterback likely until Saturday when the 'Dogs visit Hawaii.

Meanwhile for the senior class, just 3 games remain in their college careers. "I'd say what myself and the seniors are looking to accomplish is to look to go out on top. there are no time machines in life so we can't go back in the past and fix the games that we've lost and stuff like that. so just looking forward, for a lot of us this is the last 3 games of football we will ever play so we just want to have has much fun and win," said senior linebacker Ejiro Ederaine.
