TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Arizona Wildcats football coach Jedd Fisch says the team will play two quarterbacks in the 2021 season.
Gunner Cruz, a redshirt freshman transfer from Washington State, will start the season opener against BYU Sept. 4 in Las Vegas.
Will Plummer, who appeared in three games last season as a freshman from Gilbert High School, will also get regular snaps, Fisch said at a Tuesday press conference.
"Two is better than one," Fisch said.
Jedd Fisch says both Gunner Cruz and Will Plummer will play at QB. “Two is better than one.” And, if we were to pick one, “Hard to tell the other why they lost.” Cruz will start vs. BYU.— Jason Barr KGUN (@JasonBarrTV) August 24, 2021
The Wildcats are looking to rebound from a winless 2020 campaign. This is Fisch's first year as head coach.
