Well this certainly changes things. On Thursday evening, Texas A&M Quarterback Kyle Allen announced that he would be leaving the program and he will not play in the Music City Bowl.

Allen is a 6’3 sophomore from Scottsdale, Arizona and he started the majority of the season behind center for the Aggies. He completed 160-283 passes (56.5%) for 2,210 yards with 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He threw for over 300 yards on three occasions this season, all wins against SEC opponents (Arkansas, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt).

So what now for Texas A&M? Enter dual threat QB Kyler Murray (probably). Murray is a 5’11 freshman from Allen, Texas. He got his share of snaps this season, throwing for 686 yards on 72-121 (59.5%) passing. He threw for 5 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

In a 35-28 win over South Carolina on October 31, Murray was 20-28 for 223 yards and 1 touchdown. He also rushed 20 times for 156 yards and a touchdown.
