Week 10 in the Big 12 saw two undefeated quarterbacks looking to get their team one step closer to the coveted College Football Playoffs. Quarterback-wise, two statements were made in the TCU vs OK State showdown. One good and one not so good. Jarrett Stidham made his starting debut and Heard would try to redeem himself and the Longhorns against Kansas.
As a whole, our conference quarterbacks had a fairly ugly day from an accuracy standpoint. Five out of ten of our starters had completion percentages in the 50’s. Take a look at how the rankings shook out this week and let us know your thoughts.
10. Skyler Howard (West Virginia)
There would be good news and bad news for Howard on Saturday. The bad news was he was terrible through the air with only 12 completions for 149 yards. He completed 52.1% of his passes and had two picks and zero touchdowns. The good news was he was playing Texas Tech’s defense.
Credit Howard with a rushing touchdown. Also, his two interceptions were a result of head-scratching play calling from the WVU sidelines who probably took longer than they should to realize there was no reason to throw the ball.
