Thursday Trivia: The 1986 Quarterback Battle

The correct answer to the last trivia question "How many BYU representatives have been inducted into the Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame?" is nine (9)—eight players and one coach. They are: Kyle Whittingham, Bart Oates, Ty Detmer, Leon White, Robbie Bosco, Steve Young, Clay Brown, Jim McMahon, and LaVell Edwards.

On to this week's question. It appeared there would sort of  be a quarterback battle in spring practice, which got me thinking about other quarterback battles and who beat out who. Twenty five years ago, Steve Lindsley won the battle to replace Robbie Bosco. This week’s trivia question asks:
Who did Steve Lindsley beat out for the starting quarterback spot in 1986?
Leave your answer in the comments section. Come back next week when the answer is revealed and a new trivia question is asked.
