UAlbany Sports Information

 ALBANY, N.Y. – Fifth-year senior quarterback Vincent Testaverde will start the University at Albany football team’s season-opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 1, Head Coach Greg Gattuso has announced.

 Testaverde, a transfer from Miami (Fla.) in his first and only year of eligibility with the Great Danes, emerged from a three-way competition in training camp to win the starting nod.

 The son of longtime NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde, the younger Testaverde played well in UAlbany’s Spring Game this past April, completing 11 of 18 passes and tossing two touchdowns.

 Testaverde last appeared in a college game in 2014, when as a true freshman at Texas Tech he completed 15-of-26 passes for 116 yards against Texas. He then transferred to Miami, his father’s alma mater, where he redshirted in 2015.
