Collaros named starting QB in Liberty Bowl

MEMPHIS, TN (FOX19) - University of Cincinnati Head Coach Butch Jones has named Zach Collaros the starting quarterback for the Liberty Bowl.

The Bearcats quarterback broke his ankle in mid-November after a game against West Virginia, but had recently been practicing with the team in Memphis as they prepared for their bowl game on Saturday.

Collaros had been participating in six to seven hours of rehab a day, hoping to make it back on the playing field for the game against Vanderbilt.
