Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger makes history

Senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger came out and wanted to set the tone for the season. He did that and more. Ehlinger started the night with a 78-yard catch and was run out off Joshua Moore. If you blink an eyelid in the first few minutes, you missed Texas with a lot of offense. They led 21–0 after the first quarter.

Sam would finish the first half with 429 yards. He was not only his career high, but also the most among any Texas quarterback in history. His five touchdowns were the most for any first-half performance after Vince Young. The Ehlinger-Mike Urichch campaign is off to a hot start in Austin.

Ehlinger was able to hit different targets for each single touchdown throw. Graduate transfers also pay dividends to Tariq Black and Brendan Schooler. Add in Kai Money, Tight and Crew Brewer and Joshua Moore. Due to the fact that they lost Devin DuVernay and Coleen Johnson to the NFL, they were looking for a way to replace that production.
