Anderson named Bulls starter

The only real formal announcement was to the srum of local media waiting to hear who would be the starting QB for the Univeristy at Buffalo when the Bulls open the season Sept. 3 at Pitt. Head coach Jeff Quinn said that fifth-year senior transfer Chazz Anderson would be the starter to open the season, but noted that competition has been good among a host of QB candidates and the development of all players will be key to the Bulls success.

Quinn said there was no formal annoucement to the players but in Saturday's scrimmage at UB Stadium, it was clear who was taking first-team snaps (Anderson) and who was taking seconde-team snaps (sophomore Alex Zordich).

The team practiced specific situations on Saturday, including a few game-winning field goal attempts. Senior Pete Fardon, the punter who is vying for placekicking duties, hit one of those and was promptly mobbed on the field by his teammates as if they had just won the game.

"We practice all good things," Quinn joked.
