Hudson Card wins Texas’ QB battle

The Score

Redshirt freshman quarterback Hudson Card will start Texas' season opener against Louisiana on Sept. 4 after beating out Casey Thompson for the job, a source told The Athletic's Bruce Feldman.

Card and Thompson split first-team snaps during camp, and head coach Steve Sarkisian praised both signal-callers throughout the offseason.

The Longhorns' starting quarterback position became open after Sam Ehlinger entered the NFL draft following a four-season stint with the program. Ehlinger racked up 11,436 yards and 94 touchdowns against 27 interceptions through 46 appearances with Texas. He also rushed for 33 scores from 2017-2020, the second-most in school history.
