John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports
CBS Sports is reporting that Alabama quarterback Blake Sims will start for the Crimson Tide on Saturday vs West Virginia.

Blake Sims will be Alabama's starting quarterback on Saturday against West Virginia barring any unexpected last-minute changes, according to a source. Touted FSU transfer Jacob Coker will be the backup but is expected to play against the Mountaineers.

This is considered an open audition and both quarterbacks will have their chances to strengthen their case in the Georgia Dome.

CBSSports.com reported Tuesday that Alabama planned to use two quarterbacks similarly to 2011, when starter A.J. McCarron split time with Phillip Sims.
