According to Forbes, the most dangerous job in America goes to...logging workers.

However in the state of Nebrsaka, it may be the starting quarterback at UNK.

The Lopers trotted out 6 different quarterbacks in 2012

And are half way there this season.

Sophomore Tyler McKeone making his first collegiate start on Saturday for the Lopers, leading UNK to win number two with a 24 to 14 triumph over Lincoln University.

McKeone didn't throw it a ton, completing 5 of 11 passes for 38 yards and two picks, but he didn't need to, chipping in 87 yards on the ground, just part of the 306 rushing yards the Lopers rolled up on Lincoln.

Moving forward, Coach Darrell Morris can't say for certain who he'll have under center.

"You know we're not really sure what the situation might be. Tyler McNitt is getting healthier, Bronson Marsh is probably a week or so away, he'll probably start working out more this week so we'll wait and see."

"Well you know you have to be ready. Here at UNK we have had some bad luck the last couple years I have been here. You never know when your number is going to get called. So you have to pay extra attention if you're not getting extra reps in practice and someone is ahead of you. You never know when your number is going to get pulled so you just got to be ready."

Up next the Lopers hit the road and pay a visit to one and six southwest baptist next Saturday
