I said when Quinn Ewers went down, that I didn't have enough data to be confident that Hudson Card or Charles Wright could go into Lubbock and beat the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Even though Hudson Card was named the starting quarterback on Saturday, I still could have not predicted that Texas would have lost to Texas Tech 37-34 on Saturday in overtime. Steve Sarkisian is now 7-9 in his first sixteen games at the University of Texas. This Texas team has now blown five halftime leads, five fourth quarter leads, and four double digit leads in his nine losses at the 40 acres. I love Sark but that is completely unacceptable. The running game with Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson has got to get going. Playmakers like Xavier Worthy and Jordan Whittington have got to get going on the outside. This defense led by Pete Kwiatkwoski and Gary Patterson are going to have to be better on that side of the ball. Demarvion Overshown and Keondre Coburn are going to have to be better at generating a pass rush and making teams uncomfortable. Coming into this game, Texas Tech fans were calling for Donovan Smith to be benched. So of course Donovan Smith, had the game of his career against Texas. Coming into this game Donovan Smith had thrown five interceptions with two pick sixes, and they didn't force a turnover. A quarterback that has been sacked 11 times, was only sacked twice on 56 passing attempts. Ultimately, this Longhorn team just has to be better overall if they want to make it to the Big 12 championship game.
