Hudspeth: Haack, Nixon Preparing for Start vs. Tulane

ragincajuns.com

The R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl is just nine days away and the quarterback situation for the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns is still up in the air.

Ragin’ Cajuns head football coach Mark Hudspeth said at a press luncheon today that redshirt freshmen Brooks Haack and Jalen Nixon are vying to get the start in the game against Tulane on December 21 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Hudspeth says either way, he expects both quarterbacks to see playing time.  Haack started last Saturday’s game against South Alabama.  Nixon led the Cajuns to their only touchdown.

Of course, if Terrance Broadway is ready to play, this will all be a moot point.

Broadway, who broke a bone in his arm in the November 30 loss to Louisiana-Monroe, has been at practice observing since his injury.  Hudspeth said the junior signal caller was “50-50″ to play in the game.

While the status is uncertain, Hudspeth made it clear what happens if Broadway can play.  “He’s our quarterback.  If they tell us an hour before game time that he’s cleared, he’ll be out there.”

Hudspeth also said running back Elijah McGuire, the Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year, is practicing, but with a gold (no contact) jersey.  He expects to have the speedster at 100 percent for the bowl game.

The Cajuns (8-4) and Green Wave (7-5) meet Dec. 21 at 8pm.  The Cajuns are the two time defending champions of the bowl game.
