Report: Baker Mayfield to Start at Quarterback for Texas Tech

TexasTech.com

Jake Trotter of ESPN.com is reporting that walk-on true freshman Baker Mayfield will start for the Texas Tech Red Raiders Friday night.

The report filed late Thursday on ESPN.com confirms the suspicions of Red Raider fans that the true freshman from Austin would start in place of the injured Michael Brewer due to back injury.

Mayfield and heralded freshman Davis Webb have been splitting reps with the first team offense in practice according to Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury this past Monday at his weekly Monday press conference.

Trotter also reports that Brewer might be on the field as early as October 5th against the Kansas Jayhawks.
