After quarterback Nick Starkel went down with an ankle injury vs UCLA that will sideline him for an extended period of time, Texas A&M has turned to freshman Kellen Mond and senior Jake Hubenak to shoulder the load under center.

In his first action as a collegiate quarterback, Mond was just 3-17 for 27 yards. Hubenak did not play against the Bruins, though Kevin Sumlin said he was available. Hubenak started two games for A&M a season ago and has more experience than the freshman Mond.

Sumlin said in his weekly press conference that both players would see time in the Aggies' home opener Saturday at 6 pm vs Nicholls at Kyle Field.

Texas A&M's head coach Tony Buzbee brushed off comments from Texas A&M regent Tony Buzbee that he should be fired, saying, "I really don't have time to get involved in things that are said about the program or about me.
