The quarterback sweepstakes at Colorado State University is over.
Billy Farris has ended it early.
Farris beat out junior Grant Stucker, redshirt freshmen T.J. Borcky and Klay Kubiak, and freshman Alex Kelly for the starting nod.
Head coach Steve Fairchild announced his decision Monday.
Farris will make his first career start against Colorado in the Rocky Mountain Showdown at Invesco Field on August 31st.
The senior from Baton Rouge, Louisiana has played in nine games and thrown 39 passes in his career.
He replaces Caleb Hanie, who led the Mountain West Conference in passing efficiency last year before signing with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent.
