A junior right-hander, Troupe boasts a 12-1 record with 15 saves and a 3.38 earned run average over 74.2 innings pitched in his career. He has 53 total appearances, including 52 out of the bullpen.

Last summer, Troupe starred for the Orleans Firebirds in the Cape Cod League, where he was named a league All-Star. Troupe led the league with 11 saves and a registered a 1.35 earned run average along with 32 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched during the regular season.

As a sophomore with the Wildcats, Troupe turned in a 6-0 mark with a 3.29 earned run average in addition to collecting second-team Pac-12 All-Academic  honors. He struck out 49 opponents in 38.1 innings pitched. His nine saves ranked sixth-most in school single-season history and pushed his career total (15) into an all-time third-place tie with Daniel Schlereth (2006-08).

Troupe was also a key contributor as freshman during the Wildcats' run to the 2012 national championship. He won a pair of ballgames out of the bullpen in the College World Series that season, including the decisive championship game against South Carolina to capture Arizona's fourth national title.
