It was a painful start to the college football season for CMU as they lost their starting quarterback (Cody Kater) and running back (Zurlon Tipton) in the first quarter of a blowout loss to Michigan.  Enter redshirt sophomore Alex Niznak who will make his first collegiate start on Saturday against New Hampshire.  

The Chips will open their 2013 home schedule at Kelly Shorts Stadium this Saturday against New Hampshire at 3 pm.  UNH has made an appearance in the postseason nine straight years which is the longest active streak in the nation.
