Redshirt freshman quarterback Troy Williams is scheduled to make his starting debut for Washington against No. 14 Arizona State on Saturday night, UW sources told The Seattle Times.

Sophomore quarterback Cyler Miles exited last week’s game at Oregon with a concussion, and Williams took the first-team snaps during practice leading up to Saturday’s 7:45 p.m. kickoff (TV: ESPN).

Williams attempted his first collegiate passes against Oregon and scored his first career touchdown on a 7-yard run in the fourth quarter, capping a 17-play, 75-yard drive. He finished the game 5 of 10 passing for 37 yards.

A 6-foot-2, 194-pound native of Carson, Calif., Williams was the Huskies’ No. 3 quarterback a month ago, behind Miles and sophomore Jeff Lindquist, before cutting down on his turnovers and nudging ahead of Lindquist in recent weeks.

“I think he has made progress,” UW coach Chris Petersen said Thursday. “I think it’s good to get other guys reps. It is good. Whether you’re talking about on the O-line, the quarterback, whatever — eventually you’re going to need depth. So to get guys ‘one’ reps is healthy for everybody.”
