Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger was ruled out for the remainder of the Valero Alamo Bowl after helping the Longhorns to a 17-10 lead.

In the first possession without Ehlinger, the Longhorns visited the Colorado Buffalo end zone thanks to a long Bijan Robinson run and a 13-yard touchdown pass from Casey Thompson to Joshua Moore.

Thompson has been listed as the backup all season. Entering the game, he was 4-for-7 for 55 yards and two touchdowns during the 2020 season.
