The University of New Mexico football team is at UTEP on Saturday.  The Lobos are coming off an opening day loss to UT-San Antonio, 21-13.  Head coach Bob Davie said on Tuesday he was disappointed he didn't get more players into the game this past weekend.

“There’s no way Kasey Carrier should play 61 plays in that game," said Davie.

“You’re so afraid someone’s going to make a mistake that you don’t put another guy in.  We’ve got some guys behind the starters who are pretty good.  I don’t care how young they are, we have to get more guys in the game.  I understand why.  When the game is so close and we have no margin for error, but we have to bite the bullet and get guys in there.”

You can likely expect more true freshmen to see some playing time in El Paso.
