Kilton Anderson steps into the spotlight

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- It's good to be Kilton Anderson these days, "It's definitely is a little different coming from 4th string to 1st string, but the victory was dedicated to the team, it's not an individual effort, it's a team effort, it was definitely great to get a victory."

The red-shirt freshman quarterback helped engineer a win over UNLV becoming the first Bulldogs quarterback since Derek Carr in 2013 to lead the 'Dogs to a 4th quarter comeback victory.

"Looking at his body language on the field, I don't think he has a confidence problem. At times he will be mad at himself for not making the right read, but I think he's confident enough that he will make that right play and that's what you need from a leader. You need a guy that everyone else looks at and says this guy is going to find a way," said head coach Tim DeRuyter.

Despite starting the season fourth on the depth chart, Anderson's preparation had him ready for the moment when his number was called, "It's definitely difficult to go out to practice and go out and get mental reps. You never know what's going to happen with injuries and mistakes off the field and stuff like that, I was always mentally prepared so when I got my chance I just went with it."
