Kevin Sumlin discusses using both quarterbacks together

The Texas A&M Aggies are faced with a problem. Well, it isn’t really a problem, because having two great quarterbacks who are both still very young with a lot of room to grow is a very good problem. I think I would call it more of a dilemma. The dilemma is, who do you choose, the guy who came in midway through the season and showed off for your team or the true freshman who...

Texas A&M OC Says Incoming 5-Star QB Kyler Murray Will Get Opportunity To Compete For Starting Job

Last fall, Kyle Allen took over for Kenny Hill as Texas A&M’s starting quarterback, and he did a pretty-solid job.
