Good morning and welcome to Breakfast with Bevo, your morning stop for Texas Longhorns news and notes. Check us out every weekday morning for everything you need to know about Texas football, recruiting, basketball and more.
It’s now time for the Longhorns to lower their expectations for the season. At 2-2 in conference play, the Big 12 title game is out of reach and a bowl game could be in the cards. But the struggle is real, and with a game versus winless Baylor on Saturday, nothing is give any more per the Austin American-Statesman’s Brian Davis – “not with this bunch that can’t run the ball, won’t utilize its best receivers and collapses at the finish line.”
Ehlinger added to the injury list
Late Sunday, Texas officials announced that freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger was being evaluated for a head injury and was held out of Sunday’s team practice. Center Zach Shackelford suffered the same injury as well. The school did not reveal the extent of any of the injuries or a timetable for the players’ returns.
