Oregon’s starting quarterback for the 2020 season, Tyler Shough, has completed a graduat transfer to the Big 12’s Texas Tech Red Raiders.
Shough entered the transfer portal earlier this month after having an up-and-down first season under new Offensive Coordinator Joe Moorhead.

With the emergence of graduate-transfer Anthony Brown from Boston College toward the end of last season and new freshman phenom Ty Thompson making his way onto campus, some speculated that the quarterback room was widening, while Shough’s chances of starting were shrinking. A legitimate quarterback competition is expected to take place this coming offseason between Brown, Thompson, and redshirt freshman Jay Butterfield.
Shough graduated in three years at Oregon, but still has three years of eligibility remaining: he’s technically still a redshirt sophomore after the NCAA granted everyone an extra year from 2020. There is a possibility he could play against the Ducks when the two programs match up in 2023.
