We continue to present our 10th anniversary coverage of Texas defeating USC to win the 2005 national championship.  We reviewed all the content we created to celebrate victory here.

Almost our entire sports staff, along with multiple photographers, was in attendance that night. We thought we’d present to you how we covered the victory in print on Jan. 5, 2006. Below are our 12 pages dedicated to the Rose Bowl the day after Texas’ win. To view in a separate browser, click here.
