Swoo’Chele: Texas’ two-headed QB monster has its nickname

Posted September 6th, 2016


Texas fans have a lot to be excited about after Sunday’s thrilling 50-47 double-overtime win over Notre Dame, especially at quarterback.

A star was born as Shane Buechele threw for 280 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and another was remade as Tyrone Swoopes scored three touchdowns on the ground — including the game-winner.

Best of all, neither Buechele nor Swoopes seemed bothered by sharing the spotlight.

Part two comes to a stadium near you on Saturday.
