Oregon quarterback Jeff Lockie starts for injured Vernon Adams Jr.
The fifth-year transfer played through the broken finger in Oregon’s loss to Michigan State last week, completing 22 of 39 passes for 309 yards with two interceptions and a touchdown.
Lockie, Oregon’s longtime backup signal-caller, split reps in practice with Adams during the week. He appeared 10 times last season, taking over for Heisman winner Marcus Mariota late in games, and completed 21 of 28 passes for 207 yards and one touchdown in 2014.
On Saturday, Lockie threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns on 23-of-31 passing as Oregon defeated Georgia State 61–28. The Ducks improved to 2–1 on the season.
