Despite an 0-6 start and entirely too many turnovers, the New Mexico State Aggies are sticking with starting quarterback Josh Adkins.
That’s not an option for Saturday’s opponent in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, Central Michigan.
David Moore, who started the last four games for the Chippewas (3-3), was suspended by the NCAA this week after testing positive for a banned substance. Central Michigan is appealing the suspension but Moore is ineligible to play while the appeals process plays out.
That means CMU goes back to senior QB Quinten Dormady, who suffered a knee injury in Week 2 but has since returned to practice. How much the change will impact the Chippewas remains to be seen, as NMSU expects to get a heavy dose of CMU’s ground attack.
