A college football quarterback was arrested hours before his team's conference opener.

Cole Garvin, a quarterback for South Alabama, was arrested early Friday morning, according to reports that surfaced last night.

The quarterback was competing for playing time this season. He spent some time as the starter in 2017.

NBC 15 first reported the news:

Cole Garvin, was arrested on charges of Public Intoxication early Friday morning between 3 and 4 a.m. Garvin was released on bond five hours later, according jail records.

Garvin was the Jag's starting quarterback for the first game of the 2017 season. This season he's been fighting for the opening QB position on the team.

Garvin has been suspended from the football team until further notice for "violation of team rules," South Alabama Athletic Director Joel Erdmann told NBC 15.

South Alabama is set to take on Texas State today.
