Of the 12 passes thrown by Shinskie, two were intercepted, one of which was returned 22 yards for a touchdown by Rashad Carmichael.
The one pass Shinskie completed to a teammate went for a measly four yards.
"When I came in on the first series, I don't know what I was seeing back there," Shinskie said.
So how bad was it? According to Marty Couvillon of cfbstats.com, Shinskie had a pass-efficiency rating of minus-22.20. That's the worst rating in the last five-plus seasons for players with 10 or more pass attempts in a game.
As for bad passing performances this season, Shinskie has company, and it's on his own team. Fellow quarterback Justin Tuggle completed only four of 20 passes in the Eagles' 25-7 loss to Clemson on Sept. 19. One of Tuggle's passes went for a touchdown, but three were intercepted.
His pass-efficiency rating of 16.16 is the third-worst of the season, behind Shinskie and Texas El Paso's Trevor Vittatoe, who had a 10.43 in the Miners' 64-7 loss to Texas on Sept. 26.
