Texas A&M QB Kyle Allen Tweets "Don't Count Me Out Yet" After Benching

Friday afternoon, it was officially announced by Texas A&M that freshman quarterback Kyler Murray would be getting the start Saturday over Kyle Allen, who'd started the first seven games of the season for the Aggies. Allen, who won the starting job midseason last year over Kenny Hill, has struggled in his past two games, throwing just one touchdown and four interceptions.

In response, Allen has taken to Twitter to tell his followers that he's staying positive. He told Aggies fans not to "count him out" just yet, citing what happened last year when he initially lost the quarterback battle to Hill. He also encouraged his team to take down South Carolina.

Allen's benching comes after a particularly woeful performance against Ole Miss, in which he finished 12-of-34 for 88 yards and an interception. Will he get another shot, or is Murray going to be the guy going forward?
