Kyler Murray returns home, having never lost at AT&T Stadium

USA TODAY Sports

For the first time ever at AT&T Stadium, a former Texas high school star quarterback will face another former Texas high school star quarterback in an NFL game. Andy Dalton, who played at Katy and TCU, will start the rest of the season for the Cowboys.

Kyler Murray, who grew up 44 miles from AT&T Stadium in Allen, returns home to face the Cowboys on Monday night.

“I’m blessed to be in the position that I’m in to be playing in the NFL,” the Cardinals quarterback said Wednesday. “Obviously, every weekend is a great opportunity. This is another one. Going back home, playing in Dallas, it’s obviously a big game for us on Monday Night in front of everybody. Obviously have to stay composed, play my game, play our game, execute at a high level in order to win.”

Murray went 42-0 at Allen High School. He won three consecutive state titles, with all three championship games at AT&T Stadium. His college teams won twice more at AT&T Stadium, once while at Texas A&M and once at Oklahoma.

So Murray has a spotless 7-0 record at Jerry World, including five total high school games.

“I couldn’t tell you the actual record. I don’t know,” Murray said. “It’s just a lot of games, haven’t lost. But a favorite memory, I don’t know, there’s a lot of good memories there. Three state championships, the last one a Big 12 Championship, that was a pretty special one. So I really don’t have an answer for you.”

  1. Unfortunately due to the Cowboy’s fake defense and no Dak
    Murray’s streak should be safe.

  2. Neat story. Watched some of Murray on Gamepass. He looks like the real deal. Should be a good game with a lot of scoring as both of these teams have good offenses and below average (I am being kind here) defenses.

  3. I would suspect that the entire State of Texas will be watching this game. Their High School football God is returning for the first time since entering the NFL. And playing against the Boys at that! There will be many interesting side stories taking place beyond the game itself… This is one of those games we will not want to miss.
