In 2021, the Texas Tech star suffered a broken collarbone in the fourth game of the year. He had just transferred over from Oregon, where he had 1,559 passing yards and 13 touchdown passes during the coronavirus-impacted season.
Last season, Shough missed a few games with a shoulder injury, but he managed to play in seven games and help the team to a win over Ole Miss in the Texas Bowl. He was named the game’s MVP.
Behren Morton will take the reins from Shough on Saturday against Houston.
