Texas probably will see Kansas State starting quarterback Jesse Ertz when the two teams meet in Manhattan this Saturday.
Wildcats coach Bill Snyder said Monday of Ertz playing: “we’re anticipating he will.”
Ertz injured his shoulder last Saturday in a loss to Oklahoma. K-State then turned to Joe Hubener, the former receiver who played most of last season after the Wildcats lost their top two quarterbacks.
It doesn’t matter which quarterback will play. The Wildcats run Snyder’s system, which features solid running to set up play action. There will be some called quarterback runs.
Ertz was lost for the year with a knee injury on the opening series of last season.
He hasn’t played very well this year. Ertz ranks 10th in the Big 12 in passing and pass efficiency.
