AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- David Ash threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes, the last a 36-yard strike to Marquise Goodwin with 2:24 left, to give Texas a 31-27 comeback victory over No. 15 Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday night.
The Longhorns (9-4) never led before Goodwin scored his second touchdown on a deep post pattern, just a play after Texas converted a fourth-and-1 play to keep its chances alive.
Storm Woods ran for 118 yards and scored two touchdowns for Oregon State (9-4). The Beavers left stunned after looking as though they would wrap up their first 10-win season since 2006.
The victory was a dose of much-needed good news for Texas after coming into the game under a cloud of questions following the suspensions of two players on Friday. Backup quarterback Chase McCoy and injured linebacker Jordan Hicks weren't on the sideline, a day after Texas sent home the two players for violating team rules.
BEST OF MAXIM
For the first three quarters of the 2012 Alamo Bowl, the Texas Longhorns appeared to be nothing more than a sluggish team who played as if they were extremely poorly coached. Texas showed no creativity on offense, very little ability on defense and looked as if they would once again finish the college football season on a down note.
And then, David Ash did the improbable. In a huge...
If you believe UT fans who were in San Antonio Thursday night partying along the Riverwalk, Case McCoy was one of those who bellied up to a bar to celebrate the season. UT fan @morganlozano sorta gives us a play-by-play of her crew’s interaction with McCoy.
We now know that McCoy and Jordan Hicks were sent home Friday by Mack Brown for breaking curfew. We also know that a 21-year...

San Antonio TV station KENS is reporting that two members of the Texas Longhorns football team are being accused of sexual assault according to the San Antonio Police Department. This comes a day before the Texas is supposed to face Oregon St. in the Alamo Bowl. The identities of the accused players have not been revealed at this time.
"Police were called at 2:48 a.m. Friday...
Heading into the Valero Alamo Bowl, many thought Oregon State was on the rise, while Texas was on the decline. After watching what happened Saturday, it might be visa versa. Playing in front of their home state, the Texas Longhorns rallied back from two different 10-point deficits in the second half to beat Oregon State, 31-27. The Alamo Dome in San Antonio, Texas was the venue...
Art Briles was asked a peculiar question following Baylor's Holiday Bowl win on Thursday night, when one reporter wanted to know what his interest level was in the Texas head coaching job...You know, assuming it came open in the off-season.
Now to Briles’ credit, the Baylor coach handled the situation about as well as anyone could (by literally giggling at the mere idea...
Oregon State generated the biggest one-year turnaround in school history and could secure its third 10-win season by beating Texas in the Alamo Bowl.
The Longhorns are trying to reverse a three-year slide from a time when 10 wins were just a footnote on the way to championship games and other BCS bowls.
Beating the 15th-ranked Beavers on Saturday night would be another baby step...
Valero Alamo Bowl
Texas Longhorns 8-5 vs Oregon State Beavers 9-3
The Texas Longhorns are heading into the Alamo Bowl without their back up quarterback Case McCoy and without linebacker Jordan Hicks, who Mack Brown referred to as a “team leader” on Friday in a press conference. Both have been suspended from the team pending an investigation into alleged sexual assault of a woman...
The Texas Longhorns are trailing Oregon State at halftime of the Alamo Bowl but at least one member of their defense came out fighting. Literally.
Safety Kenny Vaccaro took the time to punch Oregon State wide receiver Kevin Cummings. It is assumed that the referees missed these punches as Vacarro remained in the game.

Saturday is an important day for the Pac-12 and Big XII conferences as well as the armed forces teams. Three of the nine Big XII teams are in action against three different conferences which should give them an opportunity to improve on their 2-0 record thus far in the post season. The Pac-12 has had a rough time in the early bowl games with Arizona escaping against Nevada with two...
Today’s Bowl Picks – Happy New YearReports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. After a slow start on Saturday, I was excited to see Oregon State leading Texas by 10 for most of the game. Somehow, Mack Brown and his staff dominated Mike Riley in the fourth quarter. UT QB David Ash played out of his mind and Riley inexplicably refused to pull Cody Vaz. I was now 1-3 on...
