A couple of weeks ago Jerry Rice, Jr. made his debut for UCLA against the Cal Golden Bears and had 2 catches for 17 yards. The son of the man who threw many a pass to Rice’s father will be making his first start this Saturday for the Washington Huskies as they head to Corvallis to take on Oregon State, per head coach Steve Sarkisian:
Nick Montana has appeared in 4 games this season and has completed 13 of his 20 passes for 147 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. His most extensive playing time came in last week’s 40-17 loss to USC where he completed 9 of 15 passes for 73 yards and this TD.
Montana reportedly took all of the reps with the first team in practice yesterday as Washington’s starting QB Keith Price is dealing with a sprained knee. Despite the Beavers having a 2-8 record (2-5 in Pac-12) they have allowed the second fewest passing yards in the conference at 2,113. The good news for Huskies fans is Oregon State has given up the second most passing TD’s (21).
