Shane Buechele’s star is only getting brighter in his second game at quarterback for Texas.
The true freshman quarterback fired a 46-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Dorian Leonard to extend Texas’ lead over UTEP in the third quarter.
Buechele’s third touchdown of the game — and the fifth of his career — put the Longhorns up 34-7 with 6:07 left in the third.
Watch the ball hit Leonard in stride, allowing the receiver to coast into the end zone.
