For the second time in his collegiate career, quarterback Tyler Shough is on the move.

After spending three seasons with the Oregon Ducks, Shough transferred to the Texas Tech Red Raiders in February 2021, where he spent the next three seasons.

On Tuesday, Shough transferred to the Louisville Cardinals, for a seventh and final collegiate season, according to The Athletic’s Pete Thamel.

A seventh-year senior is less rare than it used to be due to the COVID year not counting against eligibility. However, Shough also redshirted his freshman year and got a medical redshirt for the 2023 season after breaking his leg in Texas Tech’s 20-13 loss to West Virginia on September 23.

Shough confirmed the news on his X account Tuesday night.

In his six-year career, Shough has gone 355-for-562 for 4,625 yards and 36 career touchdown passes. While the yardage and touchdown pass numbers are more reminiscent of some single-season totals for some of the more prolific Oregon or Texas Tech quarterbacks, Shough had some very strong performances along the way.

Shough was named MVP of the 2022 Texas Bowl, which Texas Tech won 42-25 against the Ole Miss Rebels. Shough went 24-for-39 for 242 passing yards and added 111 rushing yards and a pair of rushing touchdowns.

Louisville should provide a nice opportunity for Shough to close out his career. The Cardinals went 10-3 this year, and have many of their offensive players returning for 2024.
