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
