Per multiple reports, Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian announced the team’s starting quarterback against TCU for Saturday. The Longhorns were hopeful this week that Quinn Ewers could return for the first time since suffering an AC sprain against Houston on Oct. 21.
Maalik Murphy has started for Texas since Ewers’ injury. Murphy has played well enough to help Texas win their previous two games, keeping the Longhorns in the hunt for the College Football Playoff. However, there is a noticeable drop-off in play between Ewers and Murphy, and Texas needs Ewers to be healthy.
Steve Sarkisian: Ewers will start against TCU
According to the Longhorn Network, Sarkisian announced Ewers will get the start against TCU.

Ewers is 151/213 passing for 13 touchdowns and three interceptions this season. Ewers and the Texas offense will be playing a 4-5 TCU team that has underwhelmed a season after playing in the national title game.
Ewers must ramp up against Texas’ remaining schedule of TCU, Iowa State, and Texas Tech to prepare for the Big 12 Championship. If Texas can win their next four games, they should find a way into the CFP.
Ewers is getting healthy at just the right time for Texas to make a playoff run.
