In what would be Mack Brown’s last bowl victory at Texas, the Longhorns faced Oregon State in the annual San Antonio matchup on Dec. 29, 2012. The unranked Longhorns bested the 15th-ranked Beavers 31-27 by scoring 14 unanswered fourth-quarter points on two David Ash touchdown tosses to Johnathan Gray and Marquise Goodwin. The bowl victory hoped to launch the Horns back to prominence. It didn’t.
