Report: Arizona QB Anu Solomon to start Saturday vs. Oregon State

Friday October 9th, 2015

Arizona Wildcats quarterback Anu Solomon will start in Saturday’s game against Oregon State, reports Brett McMurphy of ESPN.

Solomon sustained a concussion during his team’s 56–30 loss to UCLA on Sept. 26. During the second quarter, the quarterback hit his head on the leg of a UCLA defender causing his neck to bend awkwardly.

Solomon sat out of Arizona’s loss to Stanford last Saturday, but returned to practice this week.

Last year, Solomon became the first freshman to start a season opener at quarterback for Arizona. He has thrown for 845 yards and 11 touchdowns this season.
