Texas Tech Shaw starting QB for opener against Murray State | Sport

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — New coach Joey McGuire has named Tyler Shaw the starting quarterback at Texas Tech.

It was announced less than two weeks ago on Sunday The Red Raiders open their season on September 3rd against Murray State. Shaw, a senior in his second year with the Red Raiders after transferring from Oregon, was selected as the starter ahead of sophomore Donovan Smith and redshirt freshman Beren Morton.

“First of all, I want to give credit to all three of our quarterbacks because it was an incredible contest,” McGuire said. “Tyler has played well and provided consistent performance for our offense throughout camp, which has earned him the right to be our starting quarterback. “Tyler has a great football IQ and he really understands what we want this offense to look like with the responsibility we put on the quarterback.”

Shaw completed 64 of 92 passes (69.6%) for 872 yards and six touchdowns in four games at Texas Tech last season before breaking his collarbone. He started 11 games at Oregon before joining the Red Raiders
