Texas Longhorns head coach saw it coming when sophomore quarterback Casey Thompson stepped in for an injured Sam Ehlinger, only to completely dominate.

Per the Dallas Morning News, Herman said, “Really, really proud of him. We knew at halftime that there was a strong possibility he was going to have to finish the game for us. Thought Mike Yurcich called a great second half for him, some max protection. This was a very, very complicated, complex, disruptive defense that we were playing. I thought Mike simplified the game for Casey, and Casey and his receivers delivered.” Herman continued, “I mean, nobody was surprised. Maybe all of you were because he hasn’t played a whole lot. But we’ve seen him in practice for three years. None of us were surprised.”
