Zach Smith will remain Baylor’s starting quarterback going into the game against Texas, according to coach Matt Rhule. Freshman Charlie Brewer will be the backup.

“If we played today, I’d put Zach out there first and have Charlie ready,” Rhule said Tuesday at his weekly press conference. “I think at this time, Zach’s done too much. He led that comeback against Oklahoma and it’s too quick to say Charlie played great. Charlie will be ready, but we don’t want to have too quick a trigger on our quarterback.

Smith completed 16-of-27 passes for 261 yards against West Virginia before he was replaced by Brewer last week.
