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.

Almost.

USC crossed midfield one more time, but on the last play of the game, Leinart’s pass sailed high over Dwayne Jarrett’s head around the 25 and USC‘s 34-game winning streak was over.

    So, you still want Bush? Young might be one in a million, or he could be a bust.
