Luke Altmyer or Jaxson Dart? Lane Kiffin Still Mum On Who Ole Miss Starting QB Will Be Against Georgia Tech

Will it be Luke Altmeyer or Jaxson Dart going forward as QB1 for Lane Kiffin at Ole Miss?

Both Altmeyer and Dart have started for the Rebels’ during their 2-0 start to the season thus far, with either really standing out so far.

So with a matchup against Georgia Tech looming this Saturday, Kiffin still won’t say which QB will be under center when the game begins.

“We’re just going to push forward the way we’ve been going,” Kiffin told ESPN. “We’re 2-0. So, we’ll figure out [which quarterback] goes first later in the week probably.”

Kiffin’s plan was always to alternate quarterbacks in the first two games and go from there, but perhaps it’s getting to the point where he’ll have to name his starter pretty soon.

In the Week 1 win over Troy, Dart completed 18 of 27 passes for 154 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Altmeyer got the nod in Week 2 against Central Arkansas, completing 6 of 13 passes for 92 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception before he was yanked due to an upper-body injury. In relief, Dart completed 10 of 15 passes for 182 yards, 2 touchdowns.

“Both guys did some good things,” Kiffin said. “Both guys have things to improve on. So, we’re just going to keep pushing along.”

After Georgia Tech, Ole Miss will play Tulsa at home. They begin SEC play when they take on No. 9 Kentucky on Oct. 9. You would think that Kiffin will have to have his quarterback situation sorted out before that critical matchup.
