Former Nebraska quarterback Patrick Witt — remember him? — will have a tough-but-good dilemma on Nov. 19.
The Yale starting quarterback is scheduled for his final Rhodes Scholarship interview in Atlanta. The Bulldogs are also to play Harvard in a noon game. Witt wants to make both. According to Business Insider, he’ll try to by conducting the interview at 8 a.m. — then hopping a plane to play the Crimson on Senior Day.
You’ll remember Florida State defensive back Myron Rolle successfully did this a few years ago, although he arrived at the Seminoles’ game with Maryland halfway through.
This season, Witt, a history major, has completed 115 of 203 passes for 1,393 yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s started since 2009 and is on pace to break all school passing records. Yale is 4-3.
Not many quarterback transfer stories turn out as well as Witt’s did.
