Make all the “Texas is back” jokes you want.
On Saturday, the Longhorns earned some major bragging rights with a massive 34-24 win over Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers threw for 349 yards and three touchdowns as he led the offense to big play after big play in the second half. The Crimson Tide simply couldn’t keep up.
Earlier in the day, all eyes were once again on the Buffs. After a slow start, Colorado found its offensive rhythm in the second half and cruised to victory against Nebraska. Meanwhile, Utah narrowly escaped a tough road game against Baylor in a dramatic finish.
In another interesting out-of-conference game, Miami had an impressive 48-33 victory over No. 23 Texas A&M in a game where Hurricanes QB Tyler Van Dyke threw for 374 yards and five touchdowns.
And the No. 20 Ole Miss used a huge lead in the second half to pull away from the No. 24 Tulane for an impressive road win.
Outside of Texas, the biggest notable upset among the Power Five teams was Washington State’s 31-22 win over No. 19 Wisconsin. It sent fans onto the field in Pullman.
