(Eds: APNewsNow.) Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio says he cannot reveal which of the four quarterbacks competing for the Spartans' starting job will take the first snap in the opener.
Dantonio says he ''can't let the cat out of the bag'' before telling the winning candidate he has won the job.
Senior Andrew Maxwell held the starting role all of last season, completing 53 percent of his passes for 2,606 yards and 13 touchdowns to nine interceptions. Dantonio then declared an open competition at the position prior to the start of fall camp, referring to it as a four-way race as recently as Monday.
Sophomore Connor Cook, redshirt freshman Tyler O'Connor and Damion Terry are in the mix as well and Dantonio spoke highly of Terry coming off a standout scrimmage performance Saturday.
