Texas is making a change at quarterback following its first loss of the season. Head coach Steve Sarkisian announced Monday that junior Casey Thompson will take over as the Longhorns' starting QB. He replaces redshirt freshman Hudson Card, who threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns in his two starts this season. Thompson played in the second half of Texas' 40-21 loss to Arkansas, completing 5-of-8 passes and rushing for 44 yards and two TDs. Sarkisian said both quarterbacks will continue to get snaps, but Thompson will start under center against Rice on Saturday.
