September 11, 2018 07:35 PM
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Lobos quarterback Tevaka Tuioti is sidelined with a concussion.
That means Sheriron Jones is the next man up.
He played most of the game against Wisconsin after Tuioti went out early in the first quarter.
Just a few weeks ago, Jones was third on the depth chart. But now he will be starting against New Mexico State.
"Coach Wright is doing a great job with me, making sure that I am ready for that role if I have to get in there, you know. It was a steppingstone. I got a chance to grow up a little bit, have fun with some of the guys, some of the guys back me up and we're ready to go."
Kickoff for the UNM-NMSU game is set for 6 p.m. in Las Cruces.
