WATCH: Sam Ehlinger's mom, girlfriend go viral during LSU game for hilarious reaction
Going for it on fourth and goal from the two-and-a-half yard line with 5:10 remaining in the first quarter, it appeared the Texas Longhorns would take an early lead when QB Sam Ehlinger found RB Keaontay Ingram in the flat.
Instead, it was simply a turnover on downs.

Anticipating a celebration, the ABC cameras caught the reaction of Ehlinger’s mother and girlfriend.
@cjzero Please tell me you can find the girl in the crowd at the Texas game like 1 minutes ago celebrating a TD and then, after being told it was dropped, still smiling while she says "dropped it"

A junior, Ehlinger was a four-star prospect in the 2017 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. An Austin, Texas native, he committed to the hometown Longhorns and saw action as a freshman.
A big reason why Texas has reached No. 9 in the Associated Press Poll, Ehlinger has thrown for 5,483 yards and 40 touchdowns in his Longhorn career entering Saturday night’s showdown.
