LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Senior Mike Hartline has edged out a couple of youngsters to win the Kentucky starting quarterback job.
Coach Joker Phillips announced Monday that Hartline will be the starter when the Wildcats travel to rival Louisville on Sept. 4. Hartline was in a three-way battle with sophomore Morgan Newton and redshirt freshman Ryan Mossakowski.
Phillips says Hartline gives the Wildcats the best chance to win and has shown it during fall practice. Hartline threw for 802 yards and six touchdowns in an injury-plagued junior season.
Phillips also says he's still not sure who will be Hartline's backup.
