This was Ehlinger's third start of the season. He replaced starter Shane Buechele, who was limited in practice this week because of an ankle injury.
Ehlinger went 30-of-50 for 380 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Ranked the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation in the 2017 ESPN 300, Ehlinger also added 107 yards on 20 carries Saturday night.
The Longhorns are now 2-1 in games started by Ehlinger.
