Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Baylor, West Virginia, Kansas and Kansas State will all be breaking in new quarterbacks—Oklahoma State and TCU's quarterback situations are a little more complicated.
Sooners quarterback Blake Bell may have the inside edge, but Trevor Knight and Kendal Thompson will both seriously challenge Bell in a very compelling battle.
Kansas State loves to go heavy on JUCO transfers and Jake Waters may make Bill Snyder's decision very easy if he continues his march in the record books—Waters broke Cam Newton's junior college pass completion percentage record.
Baylor seems to bounce back better than most after losing prolific quarterbacks and this year we may see the same in Bryce Petty. Art Briles just keeps reeling in the QBs and making them among the most productive quarterbacks in the country.
Texas Tech not only lost quarterback Seth Doege, but its head coach in Tommy Tuberville.While I don't see a lot of teary eyes over Tuberville's departure, watching quarterback mentor and now head coach Kliff Kingsbury create magic in Lubbock will be fun.
West Virginia's quarterback competition is "wide open" according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. More:
All four quarterbacks on the roster will have a shot, [head coach Dana Holgorsen] said: Smith's backup Paul Millard, a junior in the fall; redshirt freshman Ford Childress; true freshman Chavas Rawlins of Monessen,; and Fairmont State transfer Logan Moore.
Finally, Kansas has already had its first practice and it looks like BYU-transfer Jake Heaps will be under center when everything is said and done.
