    Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger hopped on my NBC Sports Radio show to chat about the ninth-ranked Longhorns big win over rival Oklahoma. A game in which he scored five touchdowns.

    Texas has won five games in a row since starting the season with a loss to the Terps.

    On why Texas lost the opener to Maryland, the sophomore explained, "we played too tight."

    Ehlinger went to Austin Westlake High School and gave me his take on fellow Westlake alum, Drew Brees, setting the NFL passing yards record and the advice he gave him.
