Ehlinger last captain standing for Texas vs Buffs in bowl
That leaves Ehlinger alone to try to put a final stamp on a bizarre season that may or may not be his last in college. “No seniors have really been in this position to where they’ve been granted an extra year of eligibility,” Ehlinger said during Texas’ bowl preparations. Ehlinger has been the full-time starter since 2018 and ranks second only to Colt McCoy in the school record book for passing yards and touchdowns. Now he has a chance to win a fourth consecutive bowl game, a rarity for a starting quarterback. He has two career kickoff return touchdowns, a punt return TD and a blocked two-point conversion return for another score.
Texas-Kansas among 6 major college games postponed by virus
22 Texas at Kansas was among six games postponed Wednesday by COVID-19 problems as the virus took another chunk out of this weekend’s major college football schedule. Last week, 15 of the 59 games scheduled were not played. Texas-Kansas was just the second Big 12 conference game to be postponed this season and was rescheduled for Dec. 12. UNLV at Colorado State scheduled for Saturday will not be played, but there is a possibility it could be made up. ___Follow Ralph D.

Ehlinger leads No. 11 Texas over West Virginia 42-31
11 Texas converted three turnovers into TDs in a 42-31 victory over West Virginia on Saturday. Ehlinger and Texas (4-1, 2-0 Big 12) beat the Mountaineers (3-2, 1-1) on the road for the second straight time. Ehlinger and several Texas players were upset last year after several Mountaineers flashed "horns down" signs during West Virginia's 42-41 win in Austin, Texas. Texas coach Tom Herman praised his defense for making key plays when West Virginia had a chance to retake the lead after halftime.
