SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Quarterback Jeff Tuel is listed alone as the starter as Washington State prepares for its home opener against Eastern Washington on Saturday.

Last week, Tuel and sophomore Connor Halliday were both listed as possible starters on the depth chart.

Tuel completed 30 of 45 passes against BYU for 229 yards and was intercepted twice as Washington State failed to score a touchdown in a 30-6 loss last Thursday. Tuel also looked a bit slow in releasing the ball and didn't scramble much when his receivers were covered.

Tuel says the Cougars need to execute faster, and he plans to scramble more.
