Old-man Ehlinger and freshman Rattler face off in Texas-OU
October 8, 2020
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is the old man of the Red River rivalry. He has seen just about everything.
Ehlinger has watched Oklahoma Heisman Trophy winners come and go, losing to one, beating the other. He has led Texas to a win on a field goal in the final seconds. He has been battered around when the Sooners sacked him nine times a year ago.
The Longhorns senior has a deep well of experience to draw from when No. 22 Texas (2-1, 1-1 Big 12) and Oklahoma (1-2, 0-2) meet again Saturday in a Big 12 border rivalry that has made some quarterbacks and broken others.
