08/18/2014 10:17 AM

Mark Stoops kicked off the week with some good news for Big Blue Nation. He announced on Twitter that redshirt sophomore Patrick Towles will start at quarterback for the Wildcats.

Coming into UK, Towles was projected to redshirt his freshman year in 2012, but due to injuries at the QB position, he was pressed into action and played five games for the Cats. In that year, he completed 19 of 40 passes for 233 yards and one touchdown. Towles was able to redshirt his sophomore season last year with Jalen Whitlow and Maxwell Smith splitting reps.
