Tuel locked in to start on Saturday
PULLMAN, WA - Heading into Washington State's season opener against BYU both Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday were listed as potential starters.

Heading into this Saturday's home opener against Eastern Washington its Tuel listed atop the depth chart.

Following his performance against BYU in which he completed 30 passes for 229 yards and two interceptions, Tuel said he knows where he needs to improve.

"I need to clean some things up," said Tuel. "Speed some things up, and it starts with myself. I need to play better and get through my reads quicker and really disperse the ball. When guys aren't open I need to find my backs and just put the ball in play really is the biggest thing."

WSU head coach Mike Leach said, like he has every day so far, it all comes to applying what’s done on the practice field.

"We just need to consistently do what we do in practice," said Leach. "The stuff he does in practice I think is good. We need to consistently do it and the duplicate it out there on the field on Saturday."

Leach did say that at some point Connor Halliday could see some playing time. Exactly when is yet to be determined.
