Iit was a long process to find what many though would be Jalen Whitlow's replacement at quarterback for the football Cats.
With a wealth of QB's, Whitlow was asked to move to receiver, so he transferred, wanting to play behind center.
That opened things up to four guys gunning for the top spot. Patrick Towles winning out over Drew Barker, Reese Phillips and a still-rehabbing Max Smith from a shoulder injury.
Today, Towles talked to the media about how he felt when he was told it would be him to start the game against UT-Martin on Saturday, August 30th.
Hear from Towles in the video.
