Lobos Trying to find way with dual quarterbacks

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – In his own words University of New Mexico football coach Bob Davie says he prefers one quarterback. The Lobos have been going with two quarterbacks because neither Lamar Jordan or Austin Apodoca have played consistent enough to earn full game status.

“To say what each quarterback has to do, they got to play better,” said Davie.

It’s the first time Apodoca has shared reps at the position. “I never experienced this,” said Apodoca. “It is definitely new to me but, like I said, we can’t control that. We just got to go out there and do our thing when we are out there. I think as far as it goes for me, I am just going to continue to try and get better.”

Jordan, the current starter, shared reps as a freshman with then starting quarterback Cole Gautsche. It still does not make it any easier.

“It is hard, you know, because you get a rhythm then you come out then you got to get back on it,” said Jordan. “Like we say, you know, we got four good quarterbacks so you can throw us in there whenever.”

The Lobos open Mountain West Conference play at Wyoming Saturday at 1 p.m.
