This will be the fourth time McDowell is transferring in his career. He began his career at the University of Louisiana (formerly Louisiana-Lafayette), then transferred to Kilgore College in Texas, then Central Arkansas and finally Montana. In McDowell's one season at Montana, McDowell racked up 21 touchdowns, passed for over 2000 yards, ran for another 753 and led the Griz to a 10-1 record in games he started.
