Buffalo to start freshman QB Alex Zordich

Buffalo will start true freshman quarterback Alex Zordich against Temple on Saturday, benching starter Jerry Davis.

Coach Jeff Quinn made the announcement in a statement released Friday evening. The two quarterbacks competed for the starting job this week, after Davis struggled in a loss to Northern Illinois. Quinn said in his statement: “Both quarterbacks -- Alex and Jerry Davis -- are prepared to play and help this football team get better.”

Davis was just 7-of-23 for 101 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the 45-14 loss to the Huskies. Zordich came on in relief and went 2-of-3 for 19 yards. Davis has started every game this season but has been inconsistent for the Bulls (2-4), with 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on the year. The Northern Illinois game was his worst of the season.
