The Lobo football team will be going with backup quarterback Cole Gautsche this Saturday against Fresno State.

Head coach Bob Davie says B.R. Holbrook is a long shot because of his concussion.

Gautsche has only completed two passes this year - and he's thrown just two passes in his last four games.

Gautsche is only a freshman, with a lot of development ahead of him.

Davie told KOB that at some point they need to let Gautsche throw the ball and not worry about the consequences.
