NCAA Football News and Notes: Former Oregon Ducks QB Headed to Texas Tech

It did not take long for former Oregon Ducks quarterback Tyler Shough to pick his next school. He announced via Twitter today that he will be transferring to Texas Tech University to obtain a Master's Degree.

Shough entered the transfer portal just last week and will have three years of eligibility remaining. He will graduate with his Bachelor's this Spring then move into the Master's program at Tech.

He led Oregon to the Pac-12 Championship this past season in his very first season as a starter. In 11 games, he tossed 16 touchdowns to only six interceptions and added 282 yards rushing, and scampered for two more scores on the ground.

He spent his prior seasons backing up starting quarterback and First Round pick Justin Herbert. He will now compete for the starting role at Texas Tech against Henry Colombi after former Red Raiders starting quarterback Alan Bowman elected to enter the transfer portal.

It will be quite a change for Shough to enter a high-profile aerial attack like Texas Tech. It will likely help his NFL Draft stock going forward as he will be exposed to higher-scoring games and will not be playing in West coast time slots anymore.

Notre Dame Will Not Be Apart Of New NCAA Football Video Game

The University of Notre Dame has elected not to participate in the EA Sports reboot of the beloved NCAA Football video game. Citing names, images, or likenesses (NIL) as the reason, they will not be apart of it. At least, not yet.

The University would like to see some finality come of the NIL guidelines, which will allow players to earn income off their name and likeness. Many states have already passed laws that will allow for this to take place in the very near future.

EA Sports has not made an NCAA Football game since the Fall of 2013. It is revered by many and has a cult-like following now that it has been out of production going on eight years.

Once there is some finality of the new NIL rules, laws, and guidelines, we will likely see the return of Fighting Irish football to video game platforms via EA Sports' new NCAA Football game.

Brother of NFL Star RB Christian McCaffery Transferring To Louisville

Luke McCaffery, brother of Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffery and son of former NFL star tight end Ed McCaffery has decided to transfer from Nebraska to Louisville for the upcoming football season.

McCaffery spent two years at Nebraska and started two games for the Cornhuskers this year after red-shirting his freshman year. He also appeared in five of the other six games he did not start in for Nebraska this year.

He will now be competing with incumbent starter Malik Cunningham who has shown flashes of promise but has been rather inconsistent for the Cardinals.

In other McCaffery news, Dylan, the younger of the McCaffery trio, is also transferring from Michigan to Northern Colorado to finish his schooling and collegiate football career.
