- Might this be it for redshirt junior quarterback Casey Thompson after he was benched for redshirt freshman Hudson Card in the first quarter versus the Iowa State Cyclones?
Sark with a tough decision to make at halftime -- Casey Thompson needed to get pulled, but Hudson Card has now missed some open WRs, too. Although Texas has the lead, feels like it's going to be tough to win vs. a good team on the road without better QB play in the second half.— Wescott Eberts (@SBN_Wescott) November 7, 2021
