Charleston Southern was forced to change quarterbacks two weeks ago when senior starter Malcolm Dixon injured his knee. Dixon was a dual threat quarterback who had 585 passing yards and 337 rushing yards before getting hurt.
In his place, the Buccaneers have turned to redshirt freshman Daniel Crogan III. He has made two starts so far and has thrown for 396 yards and rushed for 106. His completion percentage (62.0 percent) is better than that of Dixon (53.3).
"They haven't missed a beat," Coach Mike MacIntyre said. "(Crogan) is a lot bigger. Not as fast as the (Dixon), but can run the ball and has a lot better arm."
Nelson Spruce (sprained knee) is questionable. Spruce was injured against ASU. ... Tuesday was the first day of the season that the practice bubble was inflated and ready for use. The Buffs practiced outside on Tuesday, however. ... Charleston Southern is 0-20 all-time against FBS schools.
