Oklahoma State Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy announced on Friday that he’ll be employing two quarterbacks in the season opener against Mississippi State: Clint Chelf and J.W. Walsh. Both Chelf and Walsh threw for over 1,500 yards last year, with Chelf leading the team to a Cotton Bowl victory over the Purdue Boilermakers.
Gundy, speaking about the situation, said both of the quarterbacks have made big improvements in the off-season and deserve the chance to play:
We’re going to play both guys. That hasn’t changed since the spring. Both quarterbacks have improved. I don’t really know any other way to say it, than what I’ve been saying the last five months. Both guys have been doing a good job, we’re glad we have them and they’ll both get a chance to play.
We have the same offense, but we try to play to the strengths of whoever’s in there. Both quarterbacks have continued to improve and play well (CBS Sports).
Oklahoma State originally had three quarterbacks all battling for the starting position, but former starter Wes Lunt decided to transfer earlier this year.
