WSU Vs. BYU Depth Chart: Mike Leach Releases First 2-Deep Of The Season

Washington State head coach Mike Leach has released his first depth chart of the 2012 season, and there aren't many surprises. The major question coming out of training camp has been the quarterback battle between Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday. Tuel started every game as a sophomore, but was injured much of 2011. Halliday stepped in and impressed in two games last season, before suffering a liver injury that kept him on the sidelines for most of spring camp.

Leach is still keeping the starter at quarterback close to the vest, but Brian Floyd of CougCenter says that doesn't mean the decision is a secret:

Leach is still mum about his starting quarterback -- listing Jeff Tuel OR Connor Halliday as the starter -- but that's part of the game. We all know which quarterback will start, and it's been quite obvious for some time that Jeff Tuel will lead the offense onto the field, whether it's announced ahead of time or not.

The Cougars open their season against BYU Thursday night.
