The Texas A&M Aggies got embarrassed by Ole Miss yesterday, posting just 192 total yards in a 23-3 loss, and it left many scratching their heads as to why freshman sensation Kyler Murray was benched in favor of Jake Hubenak when it came time to get Kyle Allen out of the game.
Fortunately, coach Kevin Sumlin explained his decision and it came down to one simple aspect: practice. Brett Zwerneman of The Houston Chronicle reported further details on Twitter.
Even if that is the case, Murray is a dual threat quarterback and, arguably, the Aggies’ quarterback of the future. Though the game was already lost, he at least could have helped the team show some life in garbage time. If Allen struggles next week too, perhaps Murray will get his turn.
Texas A&M takes on South Carolina on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 12 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
