Baylor appeared to have Sam Ehlinger stuffed in the end zone for a safety, and then the Texas Longhorns star pulled a rabbit out of his hat.

Watch as Ehlinger somehow escapes what looks like a sure sack and safety. After getting out of one mess, he unleashed a long pass down the right sideline just before getting plastered.

Ehlinger is a magician, ladies and gentlemen. That’s the only way to explain what we just witnessed. A magnificent escape, followed by a pinpoint throw for a first down.
