Oklahoma State names Walsh starting quarterback

J.W. Walsh is Oklahoma State’s new starting quarterback, and there are no plans for Clint Chelf to rotate in, Cowboys coach Mike Gundy said on Monday morning.

“I’ve never been a big fan of the two-quarterback system, and right now, we would go with J.W,” Gundy said.

Chelf started Saturday’s 21-3 win over Mississippi State, completing 3-of-6 passes for 11 yards. After two drives, he was benched in favor of Walsh, who finished the game with 125 yards rushing and 135 passing yards, giving the Cowboys a boost off the bench.

“If there’s a time that we need to put Clint in, we could, but we don’t expect to be in a rotating system,” Gundy said.

Chelf finished 2012 as Oklahoma State’s starting quarterback. Wes Lunt began 2012 as the Cowboys starter, but suffered head and leg injuries and transferred to Illinois during the offseason.
