Sam Ehlinger Update: Barring setbacks, “should be ready to go” in Stillwater on Saturday

UT’s QB is trending to start in Stillwater

NCAA Football: Baylor at Texas John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

That’s according to Tom Herman’s Thursday press conference.

Sam Ehlinger missed most of the Baylor game last week, Buechele was a little rusty in his stead, #11 healed up over the bye, and he is now trending to start in Stillwater.

That’s terrific news for Texas as Ehlinger has been a steady performer all year who has taken good care of the ball (only three total turnovers). Oklahoma State has struggled with QB run options (see ISU, KSU) and the extra man Ehlinger allows accounting for him in the running game has the chance to open some things up for Ingram and the Longhorn receivers downfield on play action.

Good news for the Horns. Let’s do this.
