TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona transfer quarterback Nick Isham is the most experienced quarterback in the battle for the Wildcats starting position.

B.J. Denker started a game for UA last season in a win over Colorado.

Isham started seven games for former Cats offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes two seasons ago at Louisiana Tech.

And he did so winning the job out of Fall Camp, also something none of the other quarterbacks in the Cats battle have done.

The Westlake High School (Westlake Village, CA) product went two-and-four in the six games he completed for the Bulldogs. He left his seventh start against Utah State with an injured shoulder and La. Tech trailing.

Colby Cameron replaced him and led the Bulldogs to a come from behind win. Isham never got his job back.

Isham finished the 2011 season with 1,457 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 60 percent of his passes.

He transferred in the Spring of 2012 looking for a fresh start at Arizona in a spread-offense much like the one he ran in high school.

Now he finds himself as the most experience candidate in a quarterback battle but yet an underdog to win the position.
