No. 7 Texas showed why it has a case to make the College Football Playoff in a 49-21 win over No. 19 Oklahoma State in the Big 12 title game.
The Longhorns (12-1) jumped on the Cowboys early and led 35-14 at halftime thanks to a great performance by QB Quinn Ewers. The junior threw for 346 yards and four touchdowns in the first half as Oklahoma State’s defense couldn’t do much to slow down the Longhorns’ offense. Ewers’ only blemish of the half was an interception that set up Oklahoma State’s second touchdown of the half.
Ewers found four different receivers for his TD throws in the first half.
