Former WVU QB Jarret Doege Leads Troy to Comeback Win, Gets Revenge on Western Kentucky

Published

on

On the same night the West Virginia football program suffered another setback by losing handily to Texas, a former WVU player was able to taste some revenge.

Former WVU and current Troy quarterback Jarret Doege led the the Trojans to a comeback victory over Western Kentucky, the same school he transferred from after not winning the starting job this past offseason. Doege completed 7 of his 8 passes, threw for 71 yards and added two touchdowns after replacing Gunnar Watson, who left the game with an injury.

This was all poetic justice for Doege since he also lost out on the starter position at Troy with Watson being named the QB1 just a couple weeks after Doege’s arrival on campus.

There’s no telling what this means about the rest of Doege’s season, but for this one night, JT Daniels predecessor was able to show what he can do and prove any doubters wrong.
