Texas Longhorns Game Notes
Quinn Ewers was 22-for-33 passing for 317 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Saturday’s 29-26 win versus TCU. Ewers returned from a shoulder injury to record his fourth 300-yard passing game of the season. The Longhorns needed every single one of those yards as TCU made a late rally. Ewers clinched the win on a long pass to Adonai Mitchell. While he’s likely not back to full health, it looks like he’s good to go as Texas is in the driver seat to go to the Big 12 Championship Game. Texas will play at Iowa State next week.
Iowa State Cowboys Game Notes
Rocco Becht was 15-for-23 passing for 203 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday’s 45-13 win against Brigham Young. He also had five rushes for nine yards.
It was smooth sailing for Becht against the Cougars as Iowa State had no problems moving the ball on the road. Becht threw for multiple scores for the fifth time this season. Iowa State could have perhaps the best defense in the conference which makes life easier for Becht. It will not be easy next week as the Cyclones host a great Texas team.
