The Texas Longhorns got another much-needed win, as they were dominant in the week. They are still within striking distance of a Big 12 Championship Game berth as long as they can stay on this winning streak. Winners of three straight, they enter the final stretch of the season.
Sam Ehlinger was a little off for offense on this day, but he still had the muster to get two touchdown passes in this game. He led it with Brennan Eagles from seven yards out to start the scoring. The way it looked early, many people thought we could see a Big 12 burn burner. Instead a defensive conflict broke out.
Later in the game Ehlinger would throw for his second touchdown of the game. This time with the Eagles getting out a little more after missing an opportunity again, Jake Smith ruled in a 33-yard pass for the second touchdown on the day. This helped extend their lead to a 17–13 victory. At the time the game was equaled by 10, the third faced 11 and was no problem for QB1.
