The University of Central Florida's (UCF) football team has announced their starting quarterback for the upcoming season.

UCF Football announced on Thursday afternoon that Brandon Wimbush will be their starting quarterback. He is currently a redshirt senior. 

They said that Dillon Gabriel, a freshman on the team, will also get an opportunity to play in the first game.

Brandon Wimbush, Dillon Gabriel, and redshirt freshman Quadry Jones battled for the starting job throughout preseason camp. 

"We've been pleased that all three quarterbacks have played at a high level during fall camp," the organization said on twitter.



UCF will open their college football season against Florida A&M on August 29th.
