Texas football has some genuine excitement to it again after almost taking down Alabama. Steve Sarkisian’s squad lost starting quarterback Quinn Ewers to injury in the first quarter. Now, they will have to figure out where to go from here as the redshirt freshman recovers.

Ewers will be sidelined for roughly a month with a shoulder injury, leaving Texas football somewhat thin at quarterback. Backup Hudson Card played well enough to make it a close game against the Crimson Tide but wasn’t all that great. He completed 14 of 22 pass attempts for 158 yards but also suffered an ankle injury in the Longhorns’ loss.
