Season Stats: 49.4 CMP%, 549 YDs, 4 TDs, 2 INTs, 117.7 RAT, 21 CAR, 125 YDs, 1 TD
Week 10 Matchup: No. 18 Oklahoma State (6-1) at No. 15 Texas Tech (7-1), Nov. 2, 7 p.m. ET on FOX
Clint Chelf is fortunate to have a second shot as the Cowboys starting quarterback. However, if he doesn’t step it up soon, it might be a short-lived stint.
After initially losing the starting spot to sophomore J.W. Walsh, Chelf found himself back under center last weekend.
Unfortunately, his performance against Iowa State last weekend isn’t going to make head coach Mike Gundy feel too confident in his decision. The senior threw for just 78 yards, one touchdown and an interception on 10-of-26 passing.
That follows up another lousy showing against TCU the previous week—10-of-25, 178 YDs, 1 INT.
Now, Chelf will go head-to-head with a Red Raiders offense that knows how to put up the points. It’s a game that will likely be high scoring.
If Chelf wants to hold onto the starting spot, he’s going to have to show that he’s capable of lighting up the scoreboard with the best of them.
