The Texas Longhorns were massive favorites over the ULM Warhawks in this one and did what you should do against an outmatched team, cruised to a 52-10 win in the season opener.

After a shaky opening possession in which quarterback Quinn Ewers saw his first second-ever pass attempt intercepted, the Longhorns started to roll thanks — in large part to Ewers and his right arm. The freshman finished the game 16/24 for 225 yards and two touchdowns, connecting with Ja’Tavion Sanders and Bijan Robinson for scores.

Speaking of Robinson, it was a light but productive day for the star running back, finishing his day in the third quarter with 10 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown for his efforts.

Perhaps, the defense was the biggest story for Texas, keeping ULM out of the endzone until the fourth quarter when the second and third-string players were in.

Now Texas turns its sites to the looming matchup with the Alabama Crimson Tide.
