Watch: 5 best things Jedd Fisch said leading up to Arizona's final nonconference game against NAU

Arizona Head Coach Jedd Fisch, center, speaks with the running backs during football practice at Dick Tomey Practice Fields in Tucson, Ariz. on August 13th, 2021.

The Arizona Wildcats wrap up nonconference play against Northern Arizona Saturday night at Arizona, and the UA will have a new starter under center. 

Second-year quarterback Will Plummer will replace Gunner Cruz as the Wildcats' starting quarterback, which will be the second game Plummer has started since joining the UA in 2020. 

As Arizona looks to snap its 14-game losing skid, the longest active streak in FBS that dates back to when Plummer was a senior at Gilbert High School, head coach Jedd Fisch held his second press conference of the week heading into Saturday's contest.
