Following is every FBS team listed by conference with either the named QB starter (bolded), who the assumed/expected starter will likely be based upon an established previous starter returning, or who the probable candidates are although there are sure to be some surprises. Also included for each team are the last season QB stat leaders/those who got significant QB snaps for each team.
As teams officially name QB1s, release depth charts to start the season (usually within 1-2 weeks of first game), or significant injuries happen this list will be continually updated. Reminder – this list is only up until each team’s first game of 2022.
