Coach Rick Neuheisel said the Bruins’ starting quarterback in their opener at Kansas State would be a game time decision, but Kevin Prince looked every bit the part in practice on Tuesday coming back from the strained oblique that kept him out of practice for a couple of weeks.

Prince went through the full practice, did more throwing than he had a day earlier and was sharper with his passes and within the offense.

”It felt good,” he said. ”It definitely felt better than it did (Monday). I’m still not there with my accuracy, so that’s definitely a point of emphasis right now for me. But I feel like I’ll be able to get back on track and in regards to the plan and what we’re doing I feel very comfortable.”

Prince continues to get treatment on his back three times a day, but said he feels in shape to play. ”The fact that we don’t have to play until Saturday is a lot better,” he said. ”I feel like I’ll be 100 percent by that time.”
