Steve Sarkisian had some great news for Texas football fans on Thursday as the Longhorns’ head coach announced that Quinn Ewers is set to make his return to the field against TCU on Saturday.
Ewers suffered a sprained AC joint against Houston three weeks ago and has missed each of the last two games. Maalik Murphy has been forced to start in his absence against BYU and Kansas State, and despite picking up wins in each of the games, wasn’t able to run the offense to the same degree that Ewers had earlier in the year.
With Ewers back in the fold, Texas fans should feel great about their chances to pick up three more wins and get to the Big 12 Championship game in December but don’t tell that to their opponents.
With TCU waiting this week, along with a road trip to Ames and hosting Joey McGuire and the Red Raiders to finish the year, the remaining schedule for Sark and the boys appears tricky.
TCU and Texas are set for a 6:30 p.m. CT kick on ABC from Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth (TX). The Longhorns are currently favored by 10.5 points, but that line figures to climb with Ewers back in the fold.
