Dante Chachere QB vs. Andrew Peasley QB

When it comes to the quarterback position, Dante Chachere for Portland State had a grim opening game, completing only 5 of his 14 attempts for a meager 35 yards. The completion percentage stood at 35.7% with a yards-per-attempt of just 2.5. However, he did manage a touchdown and had zero interceptions, leading to an 80.3 passer rating.


On the other side, Andrew Peasley of Wyoming fared far better. He completed 18 of 34 passes, accumulating 149 yards. His completion percentage was 52.9%, and his yards-per-pass attempt was 4.4. Unlike Chachere, Peasley was able to throw two touchdown passes and avoided interceptions. He was sacked twice but ended with a passer rating of 109.2.


The contrast is clear; Peasley exhibits far better control, decision-making, and playmaking ability compared to Chachere. While Chachere avoided interceptions, his low completion percentage and yardage can be detrimental in the long run, especially when facing an offense as competent as Wyoming’s. Peasley not only displayed better statistics but also a higher level of command over his offense, which can be a significant factor in deciding the outcome of the game.
