FILE - In this Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019 file photo, Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger (11) celebrates his second touchdown carry in the first half of the Sugar Bowl NCAA college football game against Georgia in New Orleans. The hits came at Sam Ehlinger from just about every angle this summer. Baker Mayfield jabbed him first. Then Terry Bradshaw landed one. Texas’ junior quarterback didn’t seem to mind, and will likely care even less every time he gets to flash a “Hook’em horns” hand sign after scoring a touchdown. Which he does a lot. Ehlinger and the Longhorns are expected to again challenge for the Big 12 title in 2019. (AP Photo/Butch Dill, File)
