Head coachA Justin WilcoxA removed any remaining suspense about Cala€™s quarterback situation Monday night, sayingA Chase GarbersA will start andA Brandon McIlwainA will continue to offer a change of pace at the position Saturday against FCS opponent Idaho State.

Last week, Wilcox waited until minutes before the kickoff at BYU to announce that Garbers would make his first collegiate start. The week prior, in the season opener,A Ross BowersA started and played six possessions before sitting out the second half.

Both approaches resulted in victories, despite somewhat middling quarterback play. But Cala€™s 21-18 win at BYU a€” in which Garbers and McIlwain were used in a tag-team effort a€” showed more promise.

The three-quarterback carousel combined to go 16-for-32 for 119 yards in Week 1, leading an offense that scored 17 points, averaged 3.4 yards per play and went 4-for-17 on third-down conversions.

In Week 2, Garbers started all but two drives, generally giving way to McIlwaina€™s run-heavy package in the middle of the field. The two combined to go 23-for-35 for 214 yards against BYU, operating an offense that scored 21 points, averaged 5.5 yards per play and went 8-for-15 on third-down conversions.
