Will Michigan State now have a quarterback competition? Dave Warner was asked the question following the Spartans 31-14 loss to BYU.

For the first time this season a quarterback besides Tyler O’Connor received a chance to take meaningful reps in game action. Is there now a quarterback competition brewing for the Spartans offense? Dave Warner addressed the issue following the Spartans 31-14 loss to BYU.

The Michigan State Spartans offense struggled again on Saturday to put points on the scoreboard against BYU.

With all eyes on fifth-year senior quarterback Tyler O’Connor, Mark Dantonio benched the Ohio native replacing him with junior Damion Terry.

While Terry provided the Spartans with a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended when he punched the ball in from one yard to cut the Cougars lead to 24-14, some wonder if the Spartans would be better served if the Erie, Pennsylvania product were given the starting nod next week.

Spartans offensive coordinator Dave Warner was put on the spot by the media on why O’Connor was replaced and if there will be an open competition this week when the Spartans prepare for Northwestern.
