The unranked Texas Longhorns had an upset bid fall short on Saturday in brutal, heartbreaking fashion.

With Texas trailing No. 10 Oklahoma State 13-10 in overtime, the Longhorns faced a 3rd-an-4 at the six-yard line. The one thing the Longhorns could not have in this spot is a turnover. Even if they failed to get the first down, they still had a short field goal to likely send the game into a second overtime (granted, nothing is easy with #CollegeKickers).

Well, not only did Texas turn the ball over, but they did so with one of the worst interceptions you’ll ever see. It’s hard to even try to explain what freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger was doing here, as I truly don’t know what he was doing here. All we know for sure is that this was very bad:

Even for a freshman quarterback… yikes.

This had to be particularly frustrating to a Longhorns defense that held Mason Rudolph and Oklahoma State’s elite offense to just 10 points in regulation.
