The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns expect to use a two-quarterback system in Saturday's road game at North Texas, with a decision on the starter to be made just before kickoff.

Redshirt freshman Michael Desormeaux has skippered the squad since junior and three-year starter Jerry Babb suffered a shoulder injury on the fifth play of the Oct. 1 Central Florida game. UL lost that game and its next two, but has won its last two in last-minute fashion, 13-10 at Middle Tennessee and 31-28 in overtime against Troy last Saturday.

Desormeaux played the first two series against Troy when UL took a 14-0 lead, and Babb made his first appearance in four weeks in playing the next three series. Desormeaux was in for the final series of the first half and the entire second half.

"Jerry came in and did a nice job," Bustle said. "He had some drops and we had three drives stall around the 35. He was a little rusty on a couple of reads, but it was good to see him back in there. If we catch a couple of balls, we're not even talking about it ... he could have been 6-for-6 right off the bat."

Desormeaux threw for 86 yards on 6-of-10 completions and was the team's second-leading rusher with 64 yards including a three-yard touchdown run.
