The Texas Longhorns (7-3, 5-3 Big 12) won their second straight Alamo Bowl on Tuesday night, defeating the Colorado Buffaloes (4-2, 3-1 Pac-12) 55-23.  The bowl win was Tom Herman’s fourth straight as head coach of the Longhorns and the 31st for the Texas program.  Texas started seven freshmen on the night, including six true freshmen.

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger threw for 160 yards and a touchdown before being sidelined in the second half with a shoulder injury.  Backup Casey Thompson did not disappoint, going 8-10 for 170 yards and four touchdowns.  True freshman running back Bijan Robinson continued to shine, rushing 10 times for 183 yards and a touchdown. Robinson also grabbed two passes for 37 yards and two touchdowns.

The Longhorns amassed 638 yards of offense in a dominating performance on both sides of the ball.
