Oregon has not decided who will start at quarterback on Saturday

Despite reports on Tuesday that freshman Justin Herbert would start over senior Dakota Prukop against Washington on Saturday, Matt Lubick, Oregon's offensive coordinator said that no decision has been made on who the starter will be against Washington on Saturday at Autzen Stadium.

Lubick said that both players have shared equal amount of snaps during practice indicating that it is possible both will play on Saturday.

The Oregon OC also indicated that both are demonstrating traits that will be successful on the field and the coaching staff has confidence in both players.

While the decision is not been made for the starter, the third spot will be filled by freshman Terry Wilson.

Prukop has started all of the games so far this season and is averaging 234.60 ypg with eigh touchdowns and two interceptions.

Herbert has only played in two games. In the first game he was in for the last snap of the game against Cal-Davis and he handed the ball off. Last week against Washington State, Herbert was in for the last Oregon drive when the Ducks were trailing WSU 51-26. The freshman signal caller led a 9-play, 85 yard drive that culminated with Herbert rolling out four yards for the touchdown. He was 3-for-5 for 70 yards including a long of 63 yards. 

Wilson has not seen any action nor has redshirt freshman Travis Jonsen who apparently has been relegated to the scout team after having been the No. 2 quarterback out of spring workouts last April.

Oregon is 2-3 and 0-2 for the season and will face the No. 5 ranked Washington Huskies (5-0, 2-0) in Autzen Stadium wth a kickoff scheduled for 4:30 p.m. in a game that will be carried on Fox.
