Milroe emerged from a three-man battle in fall camp to at least win the first-game nod, beating out Notre Dame transfer Tyler Buchner and former five-star recruit Ty Simpson. That doesn’t mean the competition is over since the three were listed as co-starters on the depth chart.

Milroe spent last season as backup to Bryce Young, who went on to be the first overall NFL draft pick. He started the Texas A&M game when Young was injured, passing for 111 yards and three touchdowns and running 17 times for 81 yards.
