The defense played well against the Tiger offense as fan curiosity about the starting quarterback designation continues to pique.

As explained by KBIA Sports Director Darren Hellwege:

“As far as statistics from Saturday’s game, Franklin might be seen as having the advantage. He completed 13 of 21 passes for 116 yards and the two TDs. Meanwhile, Gabbert struggled at times, although often with 2nd string teammates going up against the starting Tiger D. He completed 8 of 22 for 48 yards and had an interception. And while Ashton Glaser has generally been considered as being somewhat behind the top two on the depth chart, he made a case to be included in the conversation Saturday with a strong performance, completing 14 of 17 for 95 yards.

De’Vion Moore led the way for the Tigers rushing with 57 yards on five carries, while Kendial Lawrence had 18 yards on four carries. Backup Marcus Murphy was quite impressive with 18 yards on three carries, and the Desoto, Texas sophomore led the team with 43 yards on four receptions.”
