The New Mexico State football team is winless following a 66-17 blowout loss to UNM.  The Aggies have a bye this week and head coach Doug Martin says the team will use this time to "reevaluate some personnel and make some changes."  One of those moves could be at the quarterback position.

During his weekly interview with 610am, Martin said he anticipates replacing quarterback Andrew McDonald with King Davis.  McDonald threw an interception in the first quarter against UNM (and "could have thrown two others during the game").  Davis was hurt in NMSU's game against UCLA and has not been 100% healthy.

"You can't turn the ball over as a quarterback and you've got to make plays," Martin told Jeff Siembieda. 

The Aggies will host Rice on October 19th.  NMSU hasn't won a game since beating Sacramento State last August, a losing streak stretching to 17 games.
