Depth Chart: Vander Waal Returns to No. 1 QB Sport for New Mexico

Redshirt freshman Tyler Vander Waal has returned to the startling role at quarterback with true freshman Sean Chambers out for the rest of the season with a broken foot, and fifth-year senior Nick Smith is listed as the backup, in the only changes on the depth chart for the New Mexico game on Saturday.

While senior Nico Evans remains listed as the starting running back his status won’t be determined until Saturday. He sprained his ankle in last weekend’s victory against Air Force.
