Former Oregon Duck Braxton Burmeister starting at QB for Virginia Tech originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
Terry Wilson wasn’t the only former Oregon Ducks quarterback to start for a Power-5 team on Saturday.
Braxton Burmeister will start at quarterback in his Virginia Tech debut Saturday against NC State to open the 2020 college football season.
In 2017 as a true freshman, Burmeister started five games due to Justin Herbert suffering a broken collarbone against California early in Pac-12 play. The four-star recruit would finish the season 44-of-77 for 330 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions along with 64 rushing attempts for 102 yards and three touchdowns. (Sacks count as rushing yards in college.)
Oregon would go 1-4 with Burmeister starting, with the lone win coming in a 41-20 romping of Darren Carrington and the Utah Utes in Autzen Stadium. Burmeister finished the game 9-of-12 for 47 yards and
