Greene, who passed for 138 yards and rushed for 118 yards last week, has “earned” more playing time, per Neal Brown. J.T. Daniels, the teams starter through the first ten games, has struggled mightily over the last two weeks. He has completed 15 of 44 passes for 146 yards and one touchdown to two interceptions combined against Iowa State and Oklahoma.
Greene has been used sparingly in the backup and wildcat role over the last three seasons.
