Kyler Murray does not seem to be a Sam Ehlinger fan
Kyler Murray and Sam Ehlinger seem to feel about each other the way many rivals do. Or at least Murray does not seem to be a big fan of Ehlinger.
Ehlinger’s Texas Longhorns beat Murray’s Oklahoma Sooners 48-45 on Oct. 6 for Oklahoma’s only loss of the season. After that game, the two quarterbacks shook hands, and it did not go well, with a report saying the two had a dustup. The teams will meet again on Saturday for the Big 12 Championship Game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Murray spoke with the media on Monday and said he wouldn’t have run up to Ehlinger had Oklahoma won the game. He also was asked how much he respects Ehlinger’s game and gave a no comment.
Kyler Murray, on the postgame handshake drama with Sam Ehlinger back in October: "If we would've won the game, I wouldn’t have run up to him in that moment.” Murray was then asked how much he respected Ehlinger’s game. Murray: “I have no comment on that."

You think there is a lot on the line for Saturday’s game? You better believe it. Good thing for the Longhorns they’ve brought in a secret weapon.
