Texas and Oklahoma join the SEC

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has long been known as a powerhouse in college football, and the addition of Texas and Oklahoma is set to make the conference even more formidable. Both teams will play their inaugural SEC games in the 2024 college football season. With Texas led by the returning quarterback and preseason Heisman candidate Quinn Ewers, the Longhorns are poised to make a significant impact right out of the gate.

"Ewers has the potential to redefine what it means to be a junior QB in the SEC."

Quinn Ewers is coming off an impressive 2023 season, where he threw for 3,500 yards and 22 touchdowns. His experience and athleticism make him a key player to watch. Ewers' ability to read defenses and make precise throws downfield will be pivotal in Texas' quest for an SEC Championship in their debut season.

Ewers threw for 289 yards and four touchdowns in Texas’ 49-0 shutout of Oklahoma in the 2022 Red River Rivalry.

Statistics:

  • 2023 season: 3,500 passing yards
  • 22 touchdowns
  • Preseason Heisman candidate for 2024

On the other side, Oklahoma is no stranger to success either, with a storied program that includes multiple national championships. Both teams are well-equipped to face the SEC's fierce competition, which includes juggernauts like Alabama, Georgia, and LSU.


The integration of Texas and Oklahoma brings a new dynamic to the conference. Their strong recruitment pipelines and historical performance make them instant contenders. For Texas specifically, Quinn Ewers' leadership will be crucial. Having a high-caliber quarterback often serves as the difference-maker when it comes to clinching tight games and ultimately, championships.

Little-known fact: Before transferring to Texas, Quinn Ewers was the highest-rated quarterback recruit in the 2021 class, initially committing to Ohio State.

How Texas and Oklahoma will fit into the SEC puzzle is yet to be fully seen, but the early indications point toward a seismic shift in the conference landscape. For Texas, with Ewers at the helm, all signs point to an exciting journey that could very well culminate in a conference championship.
