AUSTIN, Texas —

FINAL: LSU 45, TEXAS 38

What an offensive shootout this was. 

It didn't seem like it would be in the first half, but LSU quarterback Joe Burrow had a solid first half, leading his team to put up 20 points on the board. 

In the second half, however, turned into offensive fireworks when Sam Ehlinger turned it on. Ehlinger scored four touchdowns in the second half alone -- three passing and one rushing. Ehlinger's last touchdown came with 22 seconds left to bring the Longhorns within a touchdown of tying the game.

An onside kick recovery scare for the Tigers almost gave Texas a chance to pull off the second half comeback. Instead, the ball was recovered out of bounds and LSU maintained possession to kneel out the game.
