FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Bret Bielema announced redshirt freshman Ty Storey as the Razorbacks’ backup quarterback on Wednesday at the NWA Touchdown Club luncheon.
Storey beat out true freshman Cole Kelley, redshirt sophomore Rafe Peavey and redshirt freshman Ricky Town. Last week, the race had been narrowed to just Storey and Kelley. Peavey announced Tuesday night he plans to transfer to SMU. Town fell out of contention early in fall camp.
Redshirt junior Austin Allen was named the starter in April and has had a strong hold on the spot ever since.
