Texas Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers is still basking in the glow of the team’s Big 12 Championship win over Oklahoma State last weekend, where the redshirt sophomore broke records as a passer. Next up, the Washington Huskies in the College Football Playoff’s Sugar Bowl.
“There’s no better feeling, honestly, especially for the guys who just dreamed of playing here and coming to their state,” Ewers said earlier this week, according to Inside Texas.
“And accomplishing something to this magnitude has been just nothing but a blessing,” Ewers said, regarding the reach of Texas’ victory. “I didn’t know that it was broadcast in all those places. So to hear that, it’s pretty cool.”
Ewers added, “Especially, I tell these guys come out here and play like no one’s seen us play before and show them what Texas football is really about and what we believe in and all that stuff. But that’s a pretty cool stat you said there.”
