On the final drive, Johnathan Gray converted a fourth-down from the Wildcat, then Ash connected with Marquis Goodwin on a 36-yard Touchdown catch, and Texas had its first lead of the game with 2:24 remaining.

Alamo Bowl: Did David Ash Save Mack Brown’s Job With Texas Longhorns Win?

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.
