Report: Pitt QB Phil Jurkovec to start against Virginia Tech


Pitt starting quarterback Phil Jurkovec will play Saturday night on the road against Virginia Tech, multiple outlets reported.

Jurkovec's status had been unclear after he left last week's game against North Carolina before halftime after he absorbed a hit from Tayon Holloway.

Holloway was flagged for targeting and ejected.

Jurkovec, a sixth-year senior, was 11 of 15 for 109 yards against the Tar Heels.

Jurkovec is still in big need of a strong effort to turn around his and his team's season. Jurkovec has completed 51.1 percent of his pass attempts for 583 yards and four touchdowns to go with three interceptions for Pittsburgh (1-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).

He spent two seasons at Notre Dame, followed by three at Boston College.

Virginia Tech (1-3, 0-0 ACC) likely will be without its starting QB, Grant Wells. He missed the past two games due to an unspecified injury. On the season, he's thrown for 494 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions.

If Wells can't play, Kyron Drones will start. He has completed 41 passes for 390 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He's added two touchdowns and 164 yards on the ground and is the second-leading rusher for the Hokies.
