AUSTIN, Texas —

FINAL: TEXAS 49, TEXAS TECH 24

Full game analysis: The first five minutes of the game favored Texas Tech favorably, but Sam Ehlinger and the Longhorns offense kept them in the game early ... something they hadn't done in the past few games.

Ehlinger was near perfect passing in the first half (11-for-14, 218 yards and one touchdown) and he continued that groove in the second half. Once the wheels started clicking for UT's offense, the rest of the team followed. The defense stepped up with four sacks and eight tackles for loss, and they forced two fumbles, as well. 

Fittingly enough, the senior class had a big day. Malcolm Roach recorded one of the four sacks and Devin Duvernay led all receivers with 199 yards and a touchdown.
