Miami quarterback Jarren Williams back to starting role vs. Florida State

Miami quarterback Jarren Williams will start against Florida State on Saturday, coach Manny Diaz said Wednesday.

Williams began the season as the starter but injured his throwing shoulder in a loss to Virginia Tech in early October. N'Kosi Perry replaced him in the starting lineup for three games, but Williams took over for an ineffective Perry last week against Pitt and led the game-winning drive.

Diaz said after practice Wednesday that Williams was "outstanding" this week.

On the season, Williams has thrown for 1,136 yards with eight touchdowns and three interceptions.
