ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The University of New Mexico football team will play at Boise state on Thursday, and head coach Bob Davie says there is no quarterback controversy heading into this one.
Starter Lamar Jordan was pulled against New Mexico State after two interceptions. Redshirt freshman Tevaka Tuioti came in to lead the comeback, pulling the Lobos within two points of tying the game.
Davie said Monday Jordan is still the starter for Thursday.
"He's our quarterback. He just needs to play better," Davie said. "He's like we are as a team, we all need to play better."
"If I can play my best game and be able to get the ball to the receivers and be able to get the ball to the running backs, I feel like I can put this team in a good position to win any game," Jordan added.
"I have confidence in myself, but right now I feel like Lamar should still lead this team because he's in a better position right now," Tuioti said.
Meanwhile, Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien left Saturday's game at Washington State after receiving multiple hard hits. His status for Thursday is questionable.
Backup Montell Cozart will likely start for the Broncos.
