SEATTLE (AP) — Sophomore Jeff Lindquist will be the starting quarterback for No. 25 Washington when the Huskies open the season at Hawaii on Aug. 30.

Washington coach Chris Petersen announced the decision after practice on Friday. Lindquist and redshirt freshman Troy Williams had been competing for the starting job after expected starter Cyler Miles was suspended for the opener for his involvement in an off-field incident last February.

Miles will be eligible to rejoin the team for its home opener on Sept. 6 against FCS power Eastern Washington. Petersen said Miles and Williams will be in competition for the starting job going forward.

Lindquist has not thrown a pass in college, but has appeared in a couple of games. He was a prep standout at nearby Mercer Island High School.
