Arizona Wildcats to start Will Plummer at quarterback vs. NAU


The Arizona Wildcats will start Will Plummer at quarterback against Northern Arizona on Saturday, head coach Jedd Fisch confirmed Monday at his weekly press conference.

Fisch said Gunner Cruz will still be in the rotation and USF transfer Jordan McCloud will get more reps in practice, suggesting he could make his Arizona debut against the Lumberjacks.

Cruz played pretty well in the opener against BYU but struggled in the 38-14 loss to San Diego State, completing just 10 of his 19 passes for 70 yards, a touchdown and an interception. The Wildcats only scored once in his 11 drives.

Plummer relieved Cruz late in the third quarter and went 8 for 17 for 109 yards and a touchdown, along with a 13-yard run.
