  Mississippi State coach Mike Leach hedged ever-so slightly, but all signs point to Will Rogers leading the Bulldogs onto the field as the starting quarterback in the season opener against Louisiana Tech. Leach said after Wednesday's practice that if "we were to play today, it would be Will." When asked whether another quarterback could supplant Rogers as the starter by the time Louisiana Tech visits Davis Wade Stadium on Sept. 4, Leach said: "It's hard to tell. Difficult to say. We'll see." Much of Leach's decision to choose Rogers as the quarterback for the coach's air raid offense comes down to Rogers' consistency, Leach said, edging him over the newcomers competing for the job. Rogers started six games last season, becoming the first quarterback in program history to record 30 or more completions in three straight games.

Rogers finished with 1,976 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions - although four of those giveaways came during his first three games, where he came off the bench to replace K.J. Costello. Once Costello suffered an injury against Alabama, Rogers took over the starting job on a permanent basis. As the starter, Rogers threw 10 touchdowns compared to three interceptions, and he averaged 227.7 yards per game through the air to go with a 69.2 completion percentage. - The Clarion Ledger
