TCU is making a quarterback change.
Duggan will start in place of fifth-year senior Alex Delton. The news isn’t too surprising as coach Gary Patterson hinted at a change all week.
Duggan has been the quarterback on the majority of TCU’s scoring drives, including when its scored all seven touchdowns this season. He’s 23-of-41 passing for 235 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s also rushed for a TD.
Delton, meanwhile, was 11-of-28 passing for 124 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.
TCU (2-0) has won 11 of the last 12 games against SMU (3-0). Patterson owns a 15-2 career record against SMU.
Here are some other pregame notes --
▪ Wide receiver Taye Barber is dressed and expected to play. Fellow WR Mikel Barkley remains sidelined with an injury, and senior TreVontae Hights is out too. Hights was wearing a walking boot in pregame warmups.
▪ Senior weak safety Vernon Scott did not go through pregame warmups. Ar’Darius Washington is expected to start in his place.
▪ Senior cornerback Julius Lewis did not go through pregame warmups either. True freshman Kee’yon Stewart is expected to make his third consecutive start.
