QB Painter Will Start For Boilermakers

Last updated on Thursday, October 9, 2008

(WEST LAFAYETTE, IN) Purdue Coach Joe Tiller says Curtis Painter is his starting quarterback for Saturday’s game at number-eleven Ohio State, but did not rule out putting backup Joey Elliott into the game.

Elliott relieved Painter in the fourth quarter of the Boilermakers' 20-to-6 loss to Penn State last Saturday.

Quarterback is not the only position seeing a little added competition this week. Carson Wiggs is competing with starting placekicker Chris Summers. Summers has missed five of his last seven field goal attempts, including two against Penn State.
