Report: Troy Williams to start at quarterback on Saturday

Redshirt freshman Troy Williams will make his first career start at quarterback tomorrow, reports Adam Jude of The Seattle Times.

UW coach Chris Petersen said on Monday that third-year sophomore Cyler Miles would start if he was cleared medically after suffering from concussion-like symptoms following UW's 45-20 loss at Oregon. It appears that will not be the case. Sounds like Williams took practice reps with the No. 1 offense throughout the week, and now he'll get his chance to play meaningful snaps in a Pac-12 football game.

Williams completed 5-of-10 passes and rushed five times for 28 yards and a touchdown during two series in the fourth quarter at Oregon. He started the year as the Huskies' third-string quarterback.
