They opted for Sanchez from a group that included E.J. Manuel, Kellen Clemens, Josh Johnson, and T.J. Yates.
If Texas is going to wrap up a bid to the Big 12 title game, it will have to do it without its biggest supporter. Bevo XV, the famed Texas mascot, won’t be on the field for Friday’s game against Kansas because the Jayhawks have a rule prohibiting live mascots. Bevo will miss the action for a Thanksgiving week game for just the second time in 73 years, according to the school.
The Big 12 publicly reprimanded Breckyn Hager on Monday after the Texas defensive end slammed rival Oklahoma following a postgame interview with reporters Saturday night. Wearing a cowboy hat and sunglasses with his hair braided, Hager was walking back to the locker room after Texas’ victory over Iowa State when a reporter informed him that the Sooners had just given up 40 points to Kansas. Hager turned around and said, “Hey, OU has no defense.” Hager then stopped again, pointed to a nearby clock and added: “Wait, wait — it’s 11:12 and what? OU still sucks.”
