  It took three years to get there, but Texas is finally 1-0 under coach Tom Herman. Sam Ehlinger threw four touchdown passes and the 10th-ranked Longhorns rolled past Louisiana Tech 45-14 on Saturday night, giving Herman his first season-opening victory with the program. Texas had started each of the past two seasons with losses to Maryland, but had no trouble overwhelming the Bulldogs from Conference-USA in this one. Ehlinger was coolly efficient from the start with scoring passes on three of Texas' first four possessions.

Herman dismissed the previous bad starts as "irrelevant," but those losses had hung over his first two seasons, even when Texas finished 2018 with a Sugar Bowl win over Georgia. His players were more willing to acknowledge just how significant getting to 1-0 meant. "It's a testament to the maturity or our team," Ehlinger said. "The confidence we have to just let loose in the opener after the last two years." Offensive lineman Sam Cosmi called the win good for the soul. "Getting a win is really good for our heads, our morale and confidence," Cosmi said. Texas is one of the favorites to challenge Oklahoma for the Big 12 title as long as Ehlinger can keep delivering touchdowns like he did last season and Saturday night. The junior passed for 25 TDs and ran for 16 more last season, and his four scoring thrown against the Bulldogs tied his career high. Ehlinger left the game at 38-0 and did not play in the fourth quarter. - AP College Football
