Texas Longhorns quarterback Quinn Ewers is in his second season as the starter and is leading the program through its final year in the Big 12. Expectations are high in Austin, TX, as the team was picked as the preseason favorite to win the conference and there is a strong chance that this could finally be the year where the Horns break into the College Football Playoff. Ewers’ performance under this pressure this year will determine whether or not he’ll be in New York City for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.
