NORMAN, Okla. — Rohach to quarterback Cyclones against OU
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Grant Rohach will remain Iowa State’s starting quarterback despite a shaky debut and probably will keep the job the rest of the season, Cyclones coach Paul Roach said Monday.
Rohach made his first start in the Cyclones’ 21-17 loss to TCU last Saturday and played better in the second half after struggling early.
He’s healthier at this point than previous starter Sam Richardson, so he’ll take the first snap again in next Saturday’s game at No. 22 Oklahoma.
Richardson has been slowed by an assortment of injuries and now has a sore thumb that hampers his passing. But he’s a better runner than Rohach, and coach Paul Rhoads alternated the two quarterbacks against TCU.
Rhoads says he hasn’t decided if he’ll use the same rotation this week, but Rohach said he expects it to continue.
