Burcham was named the Mustangs' starter in fall camp last year but sustained a season-ending elbow injury after two games. He threw for 158 yards and two interceptions against Baylor and North Texas before the injury.
Kolney Cassel took over for Burcham before being replaced by Garrett Krstich. Sophomore Matt Davis eventually became SMU's starter and played 10 games last season, throwing for 855 yards, three touchdowns and five interceptions and adding four touchdowns on the ground.
The Mustangs went 1-11 in 2014, picking up their lone win in the final game of the season against UConn.
