Quinn Ewers leads Texas to blowout win over Oklahoma

Written by Tony Ghaul

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.
