Purdue will get QBs some hits in opener vs. EKU

Purdue coach Danny Hope will play three quarterbacks Saturday against Eastern Kentucky.

Caleb TerBush, Robert Marve and Rob Henry all have starting experience, and Hope plans to use them all against a Football Championship Subdivision program that went 7-5 last year. Hope hasn't allowed any of them to be hit during preseason practices, so the opener will be the first real audition for them. TerBush will start, Marve is the No. 2 quarterback and Henry is No. 3.

TerBush started every game last season. He passed for 1,905 yards and 13 touchdowns and led the Boilermakers to a win in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.
