I always find quarterback duals interesting since they don’t ever face each other on the field at the same time.
Check it out:
Both West Virginia and Oklahoma are in the early stages of breaking in new quarterbacks to replace veteran starters and NFL draft picks. When the teams meet Saturday night, the players taking snaps will have a combined two games of starting experience and a grand total of 87 college passes between them.
That and the fact that both are from Texas, however, is pretty much where the similarities between Paul Millard and Trevor Knight end.
West Virginia’s Millard is a junior who spent two years backing up Geno Smith without ever really getting a chance to play when it mattered. He was a largely overlooked high school recruit out of suburban Dallas who threw for almost 4,500 yards as a senior and hasn’t stopped throwing since.
