AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Casey Thompson is driving the Texas offense into the Big 12 and Longhorns are looking like a steamroller. A very fast steamroller.
Thompson threw five touchdowns and ran for another as Texas continued its offensive explosion since naming him the starting quarterback with a 70-35 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Steve Sarkisian era at Texas is only two games old but has already dealt the Longhorns a harsh dose of humility and prompted a quick quarterback change.
The most experienced quarterbacks in the Big 12 have already been sidelined this season for very different reasons.
Skylar Thompson was off to good start in his sixth year in Kansas State's program before a knee injury that will keep him out indefinitely.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas coach Steve Sarkisian said Monday that Casey Thompson will start at quarterback against Rice this weekend after an inconsistent performance by Hudson Card in a 40-21 loss to Arkansas over the weekend.
No. 15 Texas (1-0) at Arkansas (1-0), Saturday at 7 p.m. EDT (ESPN).
Line: Texas by 7 1/2 according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
AUSTN, Texas (AP) — Hudson Card was solid, and occasionally great, in his first career start as the Texas quarterback.
Now he has to duplicate that effort on the road, at night, in front of a hostile sellout crowd in a legacy rivalry that will soon be reborn when Texas joins the Southeastern Conference.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Steve Sarkisian era is off to a good start at Texas behind a new quarterback and a running back finally getting his chance to carry the load for the Longhorns.
Bijan Robinson scored twice and Hudson Card threw two touchdown passes in his first career start, leading No.
No. 23 Louisiana-Lafayette (0-0) at No. 21 Texas (0-0), Saturday at 4:30 p.m. EDT (FOX).
Line: Texas by 8 1/2 according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Some things to watch during the opening weekend of the season in the Big 12 Conference:
GAME OF THE WEEK
