Brandon Dawkins is expected to start at quarterback when Arizona visits UTEP a week after he was replaced in a loss to Houston with an explanation that seemed to fall somewhere between injury and ineffectiveness.
Coach Rich Rodriguez figured the question was coming heading into a Friday night renewal of a long-ago rivalry in the Wildcats’ first regular-season trip to El Paso since they were in the WAC with the Miners 40 years ago.
“Before anybody asks about a controversy and all that, we try to get everybody ready to play, and whoever I feel gives us the best chance to win or succeed on that particular drive or series or half or game, that’s what I go with,” Rodriguez said. “It’s not really controversial. It’s just having a feel for getting guys in the game.”
Sophomore Khalil Tate replaced the redshirt junior early in the fourth quarter against the Cougars but threw an interception to end a promising drive. Dawkins returned for Arizona’s final series, which ended on downs. Rodriguez said Dawkins was healthy and would remain the starter.
The Wildcats (1-1) are favored by three touchdowns in their final tuneup for Pac-12 play in part because the Miners (0-2) are in disarray. UTEP players described scenes of teammates arguing in the huddle during a 31-14 home loss to Rice. Athletic director Bob Stull just retired, and fifth-year coach Sean Kugler’s future is in doubt.
