JJ McCarthy is locked into a quarterback battle with fellow signal caller Cade McNamara, and following the Week 1 blowout against Colorado State, things are heating up.

McNamara started against Colorado State, while McCarthy is slated to get the start in Week 2 vs. Hawaii.

McNamara completed 9-of-18 passes for 136  yards and 1 touchdown against the Rams. McCarthy came off the bench and completed 4-of-4 passes for 30 yards. He also recorded 3 carries for 50 yards and a touchdown.

Following the game, McCarthy posted the following picture to his Instagram account.

Michigan fans are already sold on McCarthy ahead of Week 2. He sure looked like the better option Saturday.
