SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - The Cal Poly football team is dealing with more than just their first regular season loss of the year this week. The mustangs will be without Vince Moraga for Saturday's game against Colorado State and could be without their starting signal caller for the rest of the year.
Moraga, who won the starting job last month after a four-way battle for the position, injured his knee early in the third quarter of Poly's 41-25 loss to Fresno St. on Saturday.
The junior left the game and did not return. The team is still awaiting results of an MRI on Moraga's knee, but it's feared to be a torn ACL that would likely shelf the Oxnard, California native for the rest of the year.
Moraga, who had never started a game for Cal Poly prior to this year, had completed 21 of 33 passes for 286 yards over the mustangs first two games. He added 17 rushes for 44 yards on the ground.
Chris Brown, who relieved the injured Moraga on Saturday, is the likely replacement for Cal Poly at quarterback. Air Force transfer Dano Graves, who missed time earlier this year with an undisclosed injury, is back healthy and also figures to be in the mix.
Cal Poly travels to Fort Collins, Colorado to take on FBS-foe Colorado State on Saturday.
