Wake Forest Planning To Start Price At QB

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Wake Forest plans to start freshman Tanner Price at quarterback for Saturday's game at No. 19 Stanford.

Price threw for 190 yards and three touchdowns in last week's home win against Duke. He also ran for a touchdown. He replaced injured starter Ted Stachitas, who bruised his non-throwing hand in the first half.

Coach Jim Grobe says Price has earned the opportunity to start, while Stachitas is scheduled to have another precautionary X-ray on his left hand. Grobe says he expects Stachitas will be able to play in some role against Stanford if needed, though the Demon Deacons will learn more about his status as he goes through practice this week.
