Texas starting QB Quinn Ewers made his highly anticipated return, going 21 of 31 for 289 yards, with four touchdowns and one interception. He has been out since he left a Week 2 loss to Alabama in the first quarter with a sprained clavicle.
Ewers picked up right where he left off, as Texas flat-out embarrassed Oklahoma, 49-0, in the 118th rendition of the Red River Showdown on Saturday. Ewars ran Head Coach Steve Sarkisian’s up-tempo offense with ease and slung the ball around like a veteran.
It was OU’s worst shutout loss in history, and its first since 1998 against Texas A&M. It was also the Sooners’ worst loss since a 69-7 loss to Nebraska in 1997.
This was the statement game that the University of Texas needed. Complete domination of your greatest rival, even if that rival is in a down year.
