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.

No. 14 Texas eager to get to kickoff with opener vs UTEP
A quick look around the Big 12 justifies his trepidation. Get that far and Texas can at least start a season in pursuit of its first Big 12 championship since 2009. Texas' first Big 12 game is scheduled for Sept 26 at Texas Tech. The Big Ten and Pac-12 scrapped their fall seasons while the Big 12, SEC ad ACC push ahead.
