Will Howard QB vs. Tyler Shough QB

Will Howard has been an invaluable component to Kansas State Wildcats offensive tactics this season. Completing an incredible 106 out of 173 attempts for 1,224 passing yards speaks volumes about Howard’s ability to find receivers and convert plays; yet his 61.3% completion rate and seven interceptions expose areas of inconsistency. Considering his 44 yard longest pass distance and 7 sacks received, this paints an accurate portrait of someone capable of long range play creation but can sometimes struggle when under intense defensive pressure.

Tyler Shough of Texas Tech offers an impressive example of efficiency. Completing 60.4% of his passes out of 111 attempts with 67 completions (67 completes and 11 attempted passes totalling 746 passing yards), his 60.4% completion rate from 67 completions shows off his value to the Red Raiders while his slightly higher passer rating (130.4) highlights it further. Shough has delivered 46-yard pass plays, showing his potential big plays. Yet worryingly he has been sacked 9 times which may indicate vulnerabilities when facing aggressive defenses while his 4 interceptions demonstrate more measured decision-making than aggressive playmaking by a quarterback who prefers safety over aggressive plays.
