TCU HC Gary Patterson said that SMU redshirt junior QB Matt Davis reminds him of Trevone Boykin in his ability to run.
"You’ve got to worry about [Davis] scrambling," said Patterson. "The hardest thing is to get on him when he goes back to pass. That’s where he’s hurt a lot of people. Big sprintout, then took off and ran last week for about a 50- or 60-yard touchdown. He creates problems." The 6-foot-2, 202-pound redshirt junior has been sharp through two games, completing 70.2% of his passes (33-of-47) while throwing for 347 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. He's also rushed for 240 yards and two scores. Mon, Sep 14, 2015 06:19:00 PM

SMU redshirt junior QB Matt Davis, a Texas A&M transfer, completed 16 of 23 attempts fr 122 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the school's 56-21 loss to Baylor.

Davis rushed for 115 yards on 24 carries. He and new head coach Chad Morris fit each other's styles very well. Davis has plenty of escapability and playmaking skills in the open field. The first half was better than the second, but daily fantasy players will likely be paying attention to Davis moving forward.

Former Texas A&M redshirt sophomore QB Matt Davis transferred to SMU.

Davis was ranked as the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the country as a four-star member of the Aggies’ 2012 recruiting class. He redshirted his first year on campus and then transferred to the JUCO ranks last year. SMU believes Davis will be eligible to play immediately in 2014, meaning he'll be eligible to play three years for the Mustangs. SMU is looking for a replacement for Garrett Gilbert.

Texas A&M redshirt freshman QB Matt Davis has decided to transfer.

Davis redshirted his first season on campus. The timing might be confusing, since Johnny Manziel's season is somewhat in question, but this is the time of year many quarterbacks change locations if they are not satisfied with their standing with the team. Davis is expected to move to the JUCO level. Matt Joeckel and Kenny Hill are competing for the No. 2 job.
