(Tulsa-AP) -- Dave Rader says last week's starting quarterback
Michael Wall will probably start the San Jose State game.

That's despite three turnovers in last week's game against Texas
A-and-M in a 62-to-13 blowout.

Wall warmed the bench during the second half of the A-and-M
game. Freshman Josh Blankenship took the field for the second half.

Rader says the Golden Hurricanes need both of their quarterbacks
to improve.

Since his 14-of-15 performance in Tulsa's opening game, Wall has
completed 20-of-39 passes for 149 yards. But he was picked off
twice and fumbled once in each of their last two games.

Blankenship has thrown at a 32-percent completion rate for 199
yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
