New Gophers coach P.J. Fleck said after practice Thursday that Rhoda and Croft will both play in the opener Aug. 31 against Buffalo. Fleck said his decision is "not a controversy" and "what's best for our program right now." He didn't announce which quarterback would take the field first.
Rhoda is a fifth-year senior and former walk-on who started one game at Maryland last season for an injured Mitch Leidner.
Croft is a sophomore who took a redshirt last season. He appeared in three games in 2015, including the second half at Northwestern after Leidner was benched.
