Texas heads to the Alamo
The Horns and Beavers will be coming off two very different results.
Will the Beavers be eager? Will the Longhorns be lethargic?
The answers will be revealed on Dec. 29 when Texas drives 84 miles down Interstate 35 and Oregon State travels about 2,250 miles from Corvallis to meet each other in the 20th renewal of the Alamo Bowl.
The Texas-Oregon State matchup fell into place Sunday as the BCS’ muddy bowl picture flnally came into focus when Northern Illinois flnished 15th in the flnal BCS standings. That meant the Huskies bumped Oklahoma — the Big 12 co-champion — from a BCS bowl, sending the Sooners down to the Cotton Bowl, which probably would have otherwise gone with the Longhorns.
Consequently, the Longhorns (8-4) and Beavers (9-3) will converge on San Antonio C2 C2
