MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Sophomore Logan Kilgore will start at
quarterback for Middle Tennessee on Thursday night against
Coach Rick Stockstill announced the decision Sunday night after
the Blue Raiders' practice.
Kilgore starts in place of Dwight Dasher, suspended indefinitely
by Middle Tennessee on Friday for accepting a loan in violation of
the NCAA's rules on amateurism. Kilgore was chosen over Jeff
Murphy, another junior college transfer.
The 6-foot-3 Kilgore arrived on campus in January as a mid-term
signee. He went 10-2 and threw for 2,512 yards and 22 touchdowns as
a freshman at Bakersfield College in California as a freshman, and
he was 21 of 34 for 322 yards in Middle Tennessee's spring game.
