MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Jesse Ertz will start at quarterback for Kansas State on Friday night at No. 8 Stanford.

Wildcats coach Bill Snyder made the announcement during the Big 12 conference call Monday.

Ertz won the starting job last season but tore his ACL in the season-opener, forcing Joe Hubener into a starting role. He had middling success, at one point losing his job to wide receiver Kody Cook.

Ertz beat out Hubener and Alex Delton, who was also coming off a knee injury.

Snyder said that Ertz was simply the most consistent of the three candidates throughout fall camp, and that the junior quarterback distanced himself from Hubener and Delton over the past week.
