National Championship comes to TEXAS!!!
With the national championship down to a final play, Young scrambled for an 8-yard touchdown on fourth down with 19 seconds left and the No. 2 Longhorns stunned the top-ranked Trojans 41-38 in the Rose Bowl on Wednesday night.
The high-scoring game everyone expected to see broke out in the second half – yet it was a defensive stop that was the key for Texas. The Longhorns stuffed LenDale White on a fourth-and-2 at midfield with 2:09 left, giving them a final chance.
Young, the Heisman runner-up, took advantage, scoring a TD and running for a 2-point conversion. With the two highest scoring teams in the country, many figured it would come down to which team had the ball last.
