The full release, via Texas Athletics:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Texas Longhorn quarterback Sam Ehlinger was named Walter Camp Award Offensive Player of the Week after passing for 314 yards and totaling five touchdowns in UT’s 48-45 victory over No. 7 Oklahoma in the AT&T Red River Showdown. 

Ehlinger was 24-of-35 for 314 yards and two touchdowns through the air, while rushing for 72 yards and three scores on the ground. His five touchdowns were the most for a Longhorn quarterback in the Red River Showdown and a new career high. His three rushing scores were a career high and the most for a Longhorn since the 2016 season. 

His 386 total yards were the second-most by a Longhorn quarterback in the Red River Showdown, behind just his 388 total yards a season ago. It was just the fourth 300-yard passing effort by a Longhorn QB ever against Oklahoma. 

The sophomore quarterback has now passed for 200 yards in all 12 career starts, while Saturday’s effort was his second career 300-yard performance. He has passed for 3,414 career yards and 22 touchdowns through the air, both 12th-most in school history for a career.

Ehlinger has now attempted a school-record 163 consecutive passes without throwing an interception, besting Major Applewhite’s previous school record of 156 set in 1999. Ehlinger and the Longhorns have played turnover free football in each of the last three games.

He is the eighth Longhorn since 2004, and the first since Malik Jefferson in 2015, to earn weekly honors. Vosean Joseph from Florida was the Defensive Player of the Week.

Riding a five-game winning streak, Ehlinger and the Longhorns return to Darrell K Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium to host Baylor on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.
