Wyoming, Missouri's opening opponent, names freshman Sean Chambers starting quarterback
Spring football has come to an end at Wyoming and head coach Craig Bohl has made his decision, his offense will run through redshirt freshman Sean Chambers looking ahead to the upcoming season.
If you are wondering why we are sharing this news, it’s because Wyoming is set to host Missouri to open the 2019 college football season. Yes, you read that correctly, an SEC team is traveling to Wyoming to open the season.
Chambers started three games for Wyoming last season before suffering an injury, he then had to beat out Tyler Vander Waal this spring to keep the starting job. Vander Waal was Wyoming’s starting quarterback at the beginning of the 2018 season before Chambers was elevated into the starting lineup.
Interestingly, in three games of action, Chambers rushed for more yards (329) than he passed for (266) as the team’s starter. However, Chambers passed for three touchdowns and only rushed for two scores in those games. In his fourth appearance for Wyoming, Chambers broke his fibula, which put his status up in the air entering spring practice.
Now that he is back to full strength, Chambers has taken the lead in the offseason quarterback competition and is poised to start against Missouri in the opener. Wyoming finished 6-6 last season and did not go to a bowl game.
