Chris Brown gets the start in the Mustangs season opener

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - Chris Brown will start at quarterback for the Cal Poly football team in the season opener on Thursday against New Mexico State.

Juniors Chris Brown and Dano Graves have waged a two-man battle since spring camp opened in early April. The duo combined for 10 starts, 1,052 rushing yards and 111 of the team's 136 pass completions a year ago.

"In reality every week it's going to say Dano Graves or Chris Brown on the board." Coach Walsh said. "Chris played the last game last year and played well, and since everything was even, we decided to roll with Chris right now.

Brown started six games last year and passed for 836 yards and 11 touchdowns while rushing for eight scores and 685 additional yards, including 195 yards in a win at UC Davis, a school record for a quarterback. Graves started four games and rushed for 367 yards while passing for 416 yards.
