Kansas football coach Les Miles decided not to publicly name a starting quarterback ahead of his team’s season debut Saturday night versus Coastal Carolina, maintaining in interviews that the competition would last through this week.

The Kansas football team’s quarterback competition could carry over into actual games instead of reaching a conclusion during this week’s practices.
Before preseason practices began on July 31, Kansas football coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon told the team’s quarterbacks they were about to embark on an open competition for the starting job.
