WATCH: Why a freshman QB gives Texas the best chance to beat Notre Dame

“It was the most hope any Texas quarterback has given a fanbase in quite some time.”

Which quarterback gives the Texas Longhorns the best chance to beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in week one? It’s a question fans have been asking all offseason.

Ted Emrich of Campus Insiders attempts to answer that question as he speaks on the quarterback battle, and concludes that true freshman Shane Buechele will give the ‘Horns the best shot on Sept. 4.

"I think Buechele gives them the best chance to win even as a true freshman. He has the right head on his shoulders. He’s got the pedigree," Emrich says. "(His spring game performance was) the most hope any Texas quarterback has given a fanbase in quite some time."

But Emrich adds that senior Tyrone Swoopes will see time as well, especially in the 18-Wheeler package, and will complement what Buechele brings to the field.
