With less than three days until College Football begins for the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys, both teams made the announcement of who their starting Quarterbacks will be.
For the Sooners, it came off as no surprise that Kyler Murray gained the starting QB position. Murray attended Allen High School in Allen, Texas. In 2014, Murray was named the Gatorade Football Player of the Year. He was drafted 9th overall in the 2018 MLB Draft by the Oakland A’s. Before playing for the Athletics in 2019, Murray wants to play his last season of College Football at OU. Sooners look to start their season Saturday, September 1 at 11 a.m. against Florida Atlantic. The game can be heard on 1230 WBBZ.
For the Cowboys, their starting quarterback is 5th year senior Taylor Cornelius. Cornelius graduated from Bushland High School in Amarillo, Texas. Cornelius almost had a starting position for the Cowboys in 2014 against Baylor when the Monday prior to the game, he was called in by OSU Offensive Coordinator Mike Yurcich that night and said it would either be him or Mason Rudolph who gained the starting position. Twelve hours later, Cornelius learned that Rudolph would be starting over him. Now that Rudolph has moved on to the NFL, Cornelius looks to shine when the Cowboys host Missouri State at home Thursday Night at 7 p.m. The game can be heard on Sunny 104.7.
