Ehlinger has plenty of passing options at No. 8 Texas

Losing two of the most prolific receivers in program history left Texas with a problem: Where would senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger throw the ball in 2020? The transfer market and a receiver who sat out 2019 while suspended quickly answered that question for the No. 8 Longhorns. Joshua Moore scored on the first play of the season against UTEP, graduate transfers Brenden Schooler and Tarik Black both scored, and even walk-on Kai Money found the end zone as Ehlinger tossed five touchdown passes in the first half.
