Golden: How Texas’ Sam Ehlinger came of age vs. Kyler Murray, OU

DALLAS — Sam Ehlinger, Longhorns legend. OK, let’s not put him in the exact class of James Street, Vince Young, Colt McCoy or Peter Gardere — who famously went 4-0 against Oklahoma — but any Texas quarterback that takes out the Sooners just once becomes part of a special group. Read More
