The Texans have failed to secure QB Sam Ehlinger a Big 12 championship in his legendary career, but they have been very good at bowling with Tom Herman. The Longhorns were able to show off their explosive offense in their recent game by scoring 69 points over the Kansas State Wildcats, and they did most of the damage on the ground, racking up 334 yards and scoring 7 touchdowns.
