The UNLV Rebels travel to take on the Arizona Wildcats Friday night to open the season, and despite these teams being reasonably close in proximity this is just the third ever meeting between the two desert schools, Arizona has won both prior meetings.
Both teams are breaking in new quarterbacks with the Rebels starting junior college transfer Blake Decker who won the job over former starter Nick Sherry. Arizona is in a more precarious situation as head coach Rich Rodriguez was either just trolling the media by releasing his first depth chart that had all four quarterbacks listed with the pesky or between Anu Solomon, Jesse Scroggins, Jerrard Randall and Connor Brewer.
"I thought he deserved the right to start the first game," Rodriguez said. "I don't know who the next guy is, but I told all four to be ready to play, because all four could play"
The quadrant system may be well and alive in Tucson and there could be a sighting Friday night.
