"We had a 14 period practice, it was mainly Washington State prep, than it was anything and I thought it was a solid practice. Obviously you already know we've named Nick Marshall our starting quarterback,” said Malzahn.
According to Malzahn, Marshall has out-preformed everyone and has a lot of play making ability.
The new starter is happy he's been given the opportunity.
"It felt good because I work hard to get where I am today, and I just basically had the chance her gave me,” said Marshall.
"We really feel like he'll have a chance to improve and get better each practice and each game, he didn't have the luxury of going through spring, but what he knows, he knows extremely well,” said Malzahn.
