Ehlinger out-duels Murray in classic battle

DALLAS — After last year’s Red River Showdown, Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger — then a freshman — admitted the atmosphere of this fierce rivalry was incredible, but losing the game was “not incredible” and added he was looking forward to the next three years.

One year later, it was the determined Ehlinger who came out on top after the sophomore quarterback out-dueled the Sooners’ signal caller — Heisman candidate Kyler Murray — to propel 19th-ranked Texas to a thrilling 48-45 victory over seventh-ranked Oklahoma on Saturday afternoon in front of 92,300 fans at the half-crimson, half-burnt orange Cotton Bowl.
