Texas A&M has had quarterback issues to begin the season. Now, it looks like Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin could be contemplating a change.
Texas A&M is now listing senior Jake Hubenak as co-starter alongside Kellen Mond on its depth chart ahead of Saturday’s game against Louisiana-Lafayette.
In the Dept. of FWIW, latest A&M depth chart lists SR Jake Hubenak OR FR Kellen Mond as starting QB vs. Lafayette this Saturday.

Both have seen action in the Aggies’ early matchups against UCLA and Nicholls State, although only Mond has started this season.
The Texas A&M offense has not exactly been clicking on all cylinders since redshirt freshman Nick Starkel suffered a broken ankle in the second half against UCLA. Gamblers will take notice of that. Texas A&M is listed as a 23.5 point favorite by MyBookie.ag (promo code: GRIDIRON) in Saturday’s game against UL Lafayette. Without Starkel, who is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season, the Aggies only scored 24 points last week against FCS Nicholls State.
The former four-star prospect Mond has struggled mightily with his accuracy thus far, completing only 39 percent of his passes, though he has picked up 44 rushing yards. Hubenak, the most experienced quarterback on Texas A&M’s roster, has completed 12 of 15 passes (80 percent) this season, although for only 93 yards.
The teams have met six times before, with the Aggies winning five. The exception came in 1996, when the Ragin’ Cajuns stunned Texas A&M 29-22.
