Born in Barakaldo, Biscay, Urquiaga played nine professional seasons with local powerhouse Athletic Bilbao, being an instrumental defensive fixture in the club's back-to-back La Liga conquests (1983-84) and starting in all the 67 games he appeared in during that timeframe. He made his debut in the competition on 13 May 1979, playing 26 minutes in a 0-4 away loss against Atlético Madrid.
Urquiaga's final two seasons were spent with RCD Español, helping the Catalans reach the final of the UEFA Cup in his first year, a penalty shootout loss to Germany's Bayer 04 Leverkusen. He retired in June 1989, at the age of 31.
Urquiaga earned 14 caps for the Spanish national team during four years, and was selected to the squad for the 1982 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 1984, being first-choice at the latter tournament as the nation eventually finished runner-up, to hosts France. His first match occurred on 26 March 1980, in a 0-2 friendly defeat to England in Barcelona.
