Cyler Miles to get first career start vs. Oregon State
By 710Sports.com staff
Redshirt freshman Cyler Miles will make his first career start at quarterback for the Washington Huskies tonight at Oregon State, head coach Steve Sarkisian announced in a pregame radio interview.
Miles will start in place of senior Keith Price, who is nursing a shoulder injury suffered in the Huskies’ last game, a loss to UCLA on Nov. 15.
Price was reportedly practicing on the field prior to the 7:30 p.m. start. He hasn’t missed a start in two years, when a leg injury held him out for the first three quarters of a game against Oregon State.
Miles has played in five games this season, including the entire second half against UCLA. He has passed 21 for 32 for 250 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He has also run for 144 yards on 14 attempts.
Price has been a standout this season for Washington with a 154.6 passer rating. He has 2,662 yards on 64.8 percent passing, with 19 touchdowns and four interceptions.
