Holtz says he believes this will force both quarterbacks to prepare as if they're the starter and help the team if either one is injured against the Hurricanes. Holtz didn't give a time frame for when he would name a starting quarterback but did say he likes Eveld's experience, including an overtime win at Miami and two career starts while the redshirt freshman Floyd has seen limited playing time this season.
Floyd's inexperience has shown in spades at times this year. He came in for a single play against Florida State in September and fumbled the ball while being sacked. The ball was picked up and returned for an FSU touchdown. On his first play against the Connecticut Huskies, Floyd fumbled the snap but it was recovered by USF.
