Searching for stability, UTEP coaches are likely to rely on multiple QBs to control the game clock, move the down markers, avoid turnovers and protect a defense rebuilding in the secondary.

To my key-hole view of the world, Friona, Texas (pop. +/- 3,500) is a special place, mostly because it gave us Tony Perea.
