The Montana State football team is in Great Falls for its annual Triangle Classic spring scrimmage, and all eyes are on the quarterbacks.

The competition between Jake Bleskin, Tanner Roderick and Dakota Prukop for the starting quarterback job is the No. 1 position battle in spring camp. Quinn McQueary is also in the mix, though he is injured.

Saturday’s scrimmage at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls will provide coach Rob Ash and offensive coordinator Tim Cramsey with another good look at the QBs.

Kickoff is at 1:30 p.m.

“I want to see continued improvement from the quarterbacks,” Cramsey said. “I want them to continue to take what the defense is giving them. Jake and Dakota have each completed a very high percentage of their passes. I’ve been very impressed with all three of them this spring.”

The Bobcats have been hindered by injuries since the start of spring practice which has led to what have been described as creative personnel packages and altered expectations. MSU hopes to leave Great Falls without any significant injuries.

“The guys have adapted very well,” Ash said. “We’ve made improvements and are making some good evaluations. Saturday’s scrimmage won’t be lengthy because we’re just so thin at some spots, but we’ll get some good work in.”
