This a list of the starting quarterbacks for the Texas Longhorns football teams since 1944.[1] They are listed in order of the first game each player started for the Longhorns that season. A player is credited with a win if he started the game and the team won that game, no matter if the player was injured or permanently removed after the first play from scrimmage.
