University of Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian announced Thursday that redshirt freshman quarterback Nick Montana will make his first career start Saturday when Washington faces Oregon State. Starter Keith Price is down with a knee injury.
Montana, son of legendary NFL quarterback Joe Montana, relieved Price last week against USC and went 9-15 for 73 yards with a touchdown. Sarkisian made the announcement via Twitter, saying, "Nick Montana will make his first career start this Saturday. So proud, he has earned this opportunity."
