Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer passed for 199 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-21 upset win over Ohio State on Saturday night.
He finished 23-for-36 and also threw a pair of interceptions. The final tally doesn't look spectacular, but make no mistake: Brewer played a key role in leading the Hokies' to a victory as a double-digit underdog against a vicious top-10 opponent on the road. The former Texas Tech Red Raider, who won a preseason competition with redshirt senior Mark Leal to replace Logan Thomas, made some critical throws to extend drives. Brewer's 10-yard scoring strike to Bucky Hodges with 8:44 left broke a 21-21 tie and seized momentum from the Buckeyes, who at that point had scored 14 straight points. Sun, Sep 7, 2014 11:36:00 PM

Former Texas Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer was named the starting signal-caller at Virginia Tech.

The Hokies kick off next Saturday against William & Mary. Brewer edged out redshirt senior Mark Leal, Logan Thomas' longtime backup. "Both of the guys gave great effort and played very well in preseason, making it a very difficult choice," Frank Beamer said in a statement released by the school. "It was a very close race and we're proud of both of them." VTU offensive coordinator Scott Loeffler told the media that both "would be needed" throughout the season. Brenden Motley is No. 3 on the depth chart.

Former Texas Tech QB Michael Brewer has transferred to Virginia Tech.

Brewer will be eligible to play immediately because he's scheduled to graduate this spring. He retains two seasons of eligibility. The former Red Raider hoped to transfer to TCU or Texas, but TTU wouldn't grant a release within the Big 12. Instead, Brewer will join the competition to replace quarterback Logan Thomas.

Texas Tech has lifted the transfer restrictions placed on former sophomore QB Michael Brewer.

The school initially prevented Brewer from considering schools in Texas, like TCU for example. Brewer is now allowed to freely pick a school, and we would not be surprised to see him stay in-state.

Texas Tech sophomore QB Michael Brewer is expected to begin practicing soon.

Brewer has been out with a back injury during preseason camp, allowing Baker Mayfied to run away with the starting job. "I definitely think when he gets healthy, we’ll see what he’s got. It’s been a long layoff for him, but he’s a talented kid and a talented player," head coach Kliff Kingsbury said

Texas Tech Kliff Kingsbury does not anticipate a quick return for redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer.

Brewer has not practiced for a month, and freshman walk-on Baker Mayfield has run away with the starting job since. "I think quite a bit," Kingsbury answered regarding how much practice time Brewer will need to catch up. "We have that bye week coming up, which should help, but I would assume it’s going to be an extended period of time before we feel like he’d be game ready."

Texas Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer has a stress fracture of a vertebrae and likely will miss several weeks, according to beat writer Kirk Bohls.

Brewer likely would have opened the season as the starter if not for this back issue, which has limited his effectiveness throughout offseason camp. True freshman Baker Mayfield could benefit the most from the injury, but walk-on Davis Webb is also in the hunt for the starting gig. New head coach Kliff Kingsbury has some work to do.

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury quick feet, a quick release, and accuracy are the three most important areas for young QBs to work on.

Kingsbury was asked which traits are most important in his scheme, and the head coach listed the aforementioned three in order. "Not all qbs have a monster arm, but those 3 things are all things that can be worked on a daily basis and improved through hard work," Kingsbury said.

Michael Brewer is the best of the backup quarterbacks behind Seth Doege.

Not only is Brewer the best of the backups, but he is not too far behind Doege. Of course Brewer, who redshirted last season as a freshman, has not thrown a college pass. Still, the experience he had last season with the scout team and his work in the spring have provided the coaching staff with a sense of ease should something happen to Doege.

While Seth Doege is the starter, Michael Brewer brings a lot to the table as the Red Raiders’ backup.

Brewer was redshirted last season after a scintillating high school career. The Red Raiders have struggled to get healthy bodies on the field this spring, especially at receiver, but Brewer has demonstrated coach Tommy Tuberville can look his way if the need arise. The coach previously expressed a desire to find him some playing time in 2012. Brewer needs to work on pocket patience, but he has a strong arm and is more mobile than Doege.

Citing his skill set, Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville would like to find some playing time for quarterback Michael Brewer.

Seth Doege is the starter in Lubbock, no questions asked. Brewer, however, has impressed early in spring drills and gives Tuberville something more than a typical backup toting the clipboard. He is a talented signal caller that could see some playing time in packages designed to maximize his talent. Plus, you never know, if something happens to Doege and he has to miss some time, it’s good to have a game-ready QB that can jump and not be overwhelmed. Brewer's first season on campus last year was spent as a redshirt.
