Flutie to Start NIU Game


After much speculation throughout the week as to who will replace the injured Darius Wade at starting quarterback against Northern Illinois, it was announced via the public address system at Alumni Stadium that Troy Flutie will be the starter. Head Coach Steve Addazio did not rule out the possibility of both quarterbacks playing during the game during media availability during the week leading up to the game, but the first offensive play of the game will feature Flutie under center.
