Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb went 28-for-44 for 288 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's win against Kansas.

Much like his own team, Webb has thrived when playing against inferior competition, and struggled when matched up against strong teams. He stared in early victories versus Central Arkansas and UTEP, and then scuffled during Tech's four-game losing streak (Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and West Virginia). Against Kansas' ragged outfit, Webb excelled again.

Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb (shoulder) remains day-to-day.

Webb injured his left, non-throwing shoulder in Thursday night's loss at Oklahoma State. "Just make sure he can protect himself, really, and operate at a level we need him to operate," Kingsbury said when asked what needed to happen for Webb to return to the field this weekend. "But more than anything, that he can handle taking a hit and protect himself." Webb's availability will be crucial to a struggling TTU squad in this weekend’s tilt against Kansas State on the road in Manhattan.

Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb is "basically day-to-day" with a shoulder injury, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb went 27-for-45 for 252 yards, three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Saturday's 49-28 loss to Arkansas.

Texas Tech HC Kliff Kingsbury called Webb a top-5 draft talent back in May, but the sophomore has looked like a late-round developmental prospect so far -- at best. Webb has great height (6-foot-5) and athleticism, though he's a bit lithe at 215 pounds. The real problem that we see is his propensity to stare down receivers. That issue is exacerbated by Webb's lack of a Plan B; often, when his primary read is covered, Webb, who has been locked onto him, might force the ball in anyway. Or he'll switch off late, having run out of time, and force the ball elsewhere. The tools are there, but Kingsbury has his work cut out for him if he hopes to convert Webb into a top-10 pick.

Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb went 17-for-31 for 278 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in Saturday's 30-26 win against UTEP.

Webb is doing his best to live up to that lofty praise, completing 67.5-percent of his passes and throwing for 730 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions in two Red Raiders' victories. He completed nearly 63 percent of his passes for 2,718 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions as a freshman in 2013.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman tabbed Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb as the Big 12's breakout player of the year.

"Don’t be surprised if Webb makes it to NYC as a Heisman finalist in the next two seasons," Feldman begins. "Kingsbury says Webb has the strongest arm of any QB to come through Tech, and he’s also extremely cerebral and determined." Webb was part of Texas Tech's quarterback carousel last year, but started the majority of games. he completed nearly 63 percent of his passes for 2,718 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Texas Tech sophomore QB Davis Webb is ranked as the No. 7 breakout candidate by ESPN.com.

Webb emerged from a crowded QB competition to send Michael Brewer (Virginia Tech) and Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) packing. "There's something to it, being the guy," Texas Tech HC Kliff Kingsbury said. "He looks, acts, talks and walks like a different guy."

Webb threw for 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions last year.

Kingsbury specifically called attention Webb's "arm strength and his mind and his size, and how athletic he is for being 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds." Webb was a sporadic starter last season, but was the most consistent and impressive of the bunch when given a chance. He has already been named the starter for 2014. "He has a chance to be very special," Kingsbury added. "He has one of the quickest releases and strongest arms I’ve been around. Very smart, intellectual thinker.

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury announced sophomore QB Davis Webb as starting quarterback.

The Red Raiders played their spring game on Saturday and Kingsbury avoided any drama by making this announcement beforehand. The 6-foot-4 Webb caught a break when his two sources of competition for the job last season both bolted campus. Webb is going to be a fantasy stud in 2014 running the Red Raiders' high-flying attack.

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury declined to name a starting quarterback on Tuesday.

"We'll see how Baker [Mayfield] feels and take it from there," Kingsbury said. Mayfield is still recovering from a knee injury that has shelved him over the past two games. Freshman Davis Webb has logged back-to-back 400-yard contests in his absence. Texas Tech has a crucial matchup against Oklahoma on Saturday.

Texas Tech freshman QB Davis Webb completed 35 of 56 attempts for 415 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in a 42-35 win over Iowa State.

Webb showed very well after starting in place of Baker Mayfield. The freshman found tight end Jace Amaro early and often. We wonder if he hangs on to the starting spot moving forward.

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury says true freshman Davis Webb will have an opportunity to open the season as the school's starting QB.

"He came in this spring and competed and was really good out there," Kingsbury said of the new Red Raider. "Great arm talent." Webb will be competing with sophomore Michael Brewer, who only threw 48 passes in 2012. Either should produce big numbers in Kingsbury's exciting offense.
