UCLA’s Prince out with broken jawUCLA quarterback Kevin Prince will be out three to four weeks after breaking his jaw late in the Bruins’ victory at Tennessee. Prince is a freshman who has led the Bruins (2-0) to season-opening victories over San Diego State and the Volunteers. He was 11 for 23 for 101 yards with one touchdown pass and no interceptions in UCLA’s 19-15 win Saturday. The Bruins play Kansas State this Saturday. Prince was hurt when Dennis Rogan sacked him for a safety with 1:41 to play, shortly after UCLA’s defense stopped Tennessee at the 1. The tackle left him with a bloody mouth, but Prince returned to kneel on the ball for the final two snaps to secure the win. X-rays in Los Angeles on Sunday confirmed Prince’s injury. His jaw will be wired shut while it heals. "We hope Kevin recovers quickly, but we have other talented quarterbacks in our program,” said UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel. Neuheisel didn’t say who would replace Prince, but the top two candidates are Kevin Craft, the Bruins’ starter last season, and freshman Richard Brehaut.
UCONN QB FRAZER OUT FOR BAYLORConnecticut starting quarterback Zach Frazer won’t play this week at Baylor and could miss the following week as well with a right knee injury, coach Randy Edsall said. Edsall didn’t give many specifics on the injury, which Frazer suffered during the second half of UConn’s 12-10 loss to North Carolina on Saturday. But he did say that Frazer, a junior, will not require surgery. Sophomore Cody Endres will start for the Huskies on Saturday at Baylor. Frazer had completed 51.2 percent of his passes and had thrown four interceptions with two touchdowns in the first two games this season
LEWIS TO REMAIN AS DUKE’S STARTERThaddeus Lewis will be Duke’s starting quarterback when the Blue Devils face No. 22 Kansas this weekend. Coach David Cutcliffe insisted that "we’re not trying to start a quarterback controversy.” He spoke the day after removing Lewis and inserting redshirt freshman Sean Renfree, who led the Blue Devils to a 35-19 win over Army. Renfree was 7 of 8 for 106 yards and two touchdowns in relief of Lewis, who was 5 of 16 for 60 yards with a score. Cutcliffe says Lewis fought both the flu and an ankle injury during the preseason, but "Thad’s our quarterback.” Cutcliff adds that he isn’t afraid to play Renfree, but that Renfree isn’t ready to start yet.
