Football: WSU names Halliday starting QB

Washington State coach Mike Leach has named sophomore Connor Halliday his starting quarterback for Saturday’s game against Cal.

Halliday threw three interceptions in the Cougars’ 19-6 loss to Oregon State, but Leach is sticking with him over senior Jeff Tuel.

Halliday has completed 105 of 196 pass attempts for 1,284 yards this season, with nine touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Halliday’s freshman season ended last November when he suffered a lacerated liver in WSU’s loss to Utah.¬† Halliday actually played the final three quarters of the game with the injury.
