MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Sam Ehlinger helped Texas get that elusive win over a ranked opponent.
Ehlinger threw two touchdown passes and the Longhorns became bowl eligible under first-year coach Tom Herman with a 28-14 win over No. 24 West Virginia on Saturday in a game in which the Mountaineers lost quarterback Will Grier to injury.
Texas (6-5, 5-3 Big 12) qualified for a bowl for the first time since 2014, which was former coach Charlie Strong's first season. The Longhorns also beat a ranked opponent for the first time in five tries this season.
