Texas Tech on Monday named Seth Doege its starting quarterback. The announcement from head coach Tommy Tuberville after Monday’s workout came as no surprise. Doege got the majority of snaps with the first team in the spring and was coming off a 20-for-24 performance in the team’s scrimmage on Saturday.

“Seth Doege, right now, is going to be our starter,” Tuberville said. “Everybody pretty much knows that. That could change, depending on how he practices.

“We pretty much figured he’d be the guy that gets the reins early. But I want to keep the pressure on him and give the other guys a chance to throw their that in the ring.”

Tuberville said Doege will get most of the snaps with the first team and Jacob Karam most of the snaps with the second team leading up to Tech’s Sept. 3 season opener against Texas State.
