Texas’s Lubbock (AP) — Texas Tech’s starting quarterback will be Tyler Shough, according to incoming coach Joey McGuire.
The announcement was made on Sunday, less than two weeks before the Red Raiders’ season opener against Murray State on September 3. Shough, a senior who transferred from Oregon and is in his second season with the Red Raiders, was chosen as the starting quarterback over Donovan Smith, a sophomore, and Behren Morton, a redshirt freshman.
As this was an incredible competition, McGuire added, “I first want to commend all three of our quarterbacks.” “Tyler has performed admirably throughout summer and put our offense in a position to be successful regularly, earning him the right to be our starting quarterback. Tyler has a high football IQ and truly understands the type of responsibilities we place on the quarterback in this offense.
Before injuring his collarbone last season, Shough completed 64 of 92 passes (69.6%) for 872 yards and six touchdowns in Texas Tech’s four games. Prior to joining the Red Raiders, he started 11 games for Oregon.
