Signalcaller is now fifth in school history with 48 TD passes

AUSTIN, Texas – The Horns are humming offensively.
The catalyst, as expected, is junior quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who played a nearly perfect game Saturday in the 12th-ranked Longhorns’ easy 48-13 win over Rice in Houston.
Ehlinger was 23 of 27 passing against the Owls for 279 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for 27 yards on five carries, all on scrambles when he decided it was better to run that to try to force the ball into tight coverage.[habeabk]
