Tessitore next up for OU-Texas
During the past 50 years, Chris Schenkel, Keith Jackson, Brent Musburger and Brad Nessler were among the luminaries who provided OU-Texas television playby-play.
“In college football, any time you have an experienced, talented and confident quarterback, it (results in) the biggest gap between teams,” Tessitore said. “There is so much inexperience on the field in every college football game, and there are always question marks on everybody's two-deep.
“So to have that guy at quarterback, and he's your most experienced, talented and confident player, it's a huge edge.”
In the third start of his rookie season, Ehlinger passed for 380 yards and rushed for 107 against K-State.
“I don't think the kid is refined and polished,” Tessitore said, “but there's something very sturdy about him. When you look at him physically, and see the way he carries himself on the field, he just looks like a player who's going to win college football games.
“He's that alpha dog rah-rah guy. He's got a lot of Tim Tebow in him.”
