Rausch, who had been tabbed to replace departed star and Heisman Trophy finalist Colt Brennan, missed several days of practice beginning last week because of a sore right throwing arm.
Rausch still dressed for the game.
Alexander spent the last two seasons at Santa Rosa Junior College in California, throwing 71 touchdowns passes. He completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,487 yards, 40 touchdowns and only six interceptions last season.
The Warriors could have another quarterback in the mix starting next week. Senior Tyler Graunke, who threw for 1,234 yards and 10 touchdowns as Brennan's backup last season, missed most of preseason practice because of academic issues.
Graunke was reinstated last week, but didn't make the trip to Gainesville.
