LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky's quarterback competition is down to Jalen Whitlow and Maxwell Smith.
Wildcats coach Mark Stoops said after Tuesday's scrimmage at Commonwealth Stadium that both quarterbacks will see action in Kentucky's season opener against Western Kentucky, but he doesn't know who will start.
Whitlow, Smith and fellow sophomore Patrick Towles have competed for the starting job since the spring.
Stoops says Smith and Whitlow looked good leading the offense Tuesday and their performances will factor into who will start against WKU. But he also says no matter who starts, it will be a dual quarterback effort when the Wildcats meet the Hilltoppers on Aug. 31 in Nashville.
