AUSTIN, Texas — Week One is done, and for the first time in the three-year Tom Herman era on the Forty Acres, Texas is 1-0.

Sam Ehlinger tossed four touchdown passes and the Texas defense made most of the plays when it needed to as the 10th-ranked Longhorns waltzed past visiting Louisiana Tech 45-14 Saturday in the season opener for both teams.
