Gary Patterson said Tuesday that both Kenny Hill and Shawn Robinson are questionable for Friday’s game against Baylor. If neither can go, that leaves Grayson Muehlstien to captain the ship. Karson Ringdahl, a walk on, was the third string against Texas Tech, so it can only be assumed that he would be the backup Friday.
Patterson is hopeful, though, that either Hill or Robinson will be ready to go.
“It’ll be good if we get both the quarterbacks back so we’re ready to go,” Patterson said. “That’ll help our offense.”
With Hill and Robinson questionable, and Darius Anderson out for the season, things really fall to Kyle Hicks to carry the load. And we all remember what happened when Hicks played Baylor last season.
"We need somebody to step up and do what Darus Anderson did," Patterson said.
"It's time for Kyle Hicks to be the guy who does that.
"For us to have a chance to win the last two games and go into the bowl game, it's going to be important that he's able to do what we need him to do."
Our panel of nine college football experts predict 20 games each week, both straight up and against the spread. This week's games include a pair of Big 12 rivalry games on Friday -- TCU hosts Baylor, as the Bears get 24 points, and Texas hosts Texas Tech.
If Robinson ends up getting the start, the two 6A state championship quarterbacks will be matched up in this game.
If Brewer and TCU’s Robinson both start, the game would match up last year’s two Texas Class 6A championship quarterbacks. Brewer led Lake Travis to a 41-13 win over The Woodlands in the Division I title game while Robinson guided DeSoto to a 38-29 win over Cibolo Steele in the Division II final.
