REPORT: JT Shrout to start at QB vs. Air Force

·1 min read

Around 5 p.m. MT on Friday evening, Brent Briggeman of the Colorado Springs Gazette reported that JT Shrout will start at quarterback for the Buffs on Saturday at Air Force. Brian Howell of BuffZone confirmed soon after that he was getting the same information from a source.

Shrout made his CU debut in Week 1 against TCU and the general consensus was that he played better than Brendon Lewis, who started the game. It also didn’t hurt that Shrout’s final drive culminated in a touchdown pass to Jordyn Tyson.

Depending on how things go, I still expect Karl Dorrell to rotate Lewis in at some point, though. But for now, Shrout will be taking the first snaps at Falcon Stadium.
