Florida Atlantic may be without its starting quarterback Saturday against WKU.

Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger said on Monday’s Sun Belt Conference coaches’ call that quarterback Graham Wilbert’s status is questionable for Saturday.

Wilbert is 68-of-135 for 627 yards this year, with four touchdowns and seven interceptions for the 0-5 Owls.

“Graham looks like he’s going to be questionable for the game, and of course he hasn’t had a really productive game as of yet,” Schnellenberger said. “So we have a lot of uncertainty at this juncture.”

If Wilbert can’t play, David Kooi will likely start against the Toppers.

Kooi, who saw significant playing time in the second half of FAU’s loss to North Texas Saturday, is 9-of-14 this season for 89 yards and one touchdown.

Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday. It will be the first game played at FAU’s new “On-Campus Stadium,” whic has yet to be given an official name.
