BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Texas Tech transfer Michael Brewer has won the starting quarterback job for Virginia Tech.

Hokies coach Frank Beamer made the announcement Saturday, choosing Brewer over senior Mark Leal.

"Both of the guys gave great effort and played very well in preseason, making it a very difficult choice," Beamer said. "It was a very close race."

Brewer, from Lake Travis, Texas, enrolled at Virginia Tech in the summer with two years of eligibility remaining after graduating from Texas Tech with a degree in personal financial planning. Because he graduated, he was immediately eligible to play for the Hokies.
