After finishing the regular season with a loss to Kansas State on Saturday, the Texas Longhorns (8-4) were selected to play the Oregon State Beavers (9-3) on December 29th in the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.

Oregon State capped off the regular season with a 77-3 win over Nicholls State and finish 15th in the final Associated Press Top 25 Poll. Texas and Oregon State have played only two times before (1980 & 1987) with Texas winning both games.

Official word from the Alamo Bowl isn't expected until later tonight, after the BCS selections. But the last bit of doubt looks to have been removed according to multiple reports, with the Holiday Bowl having made their selection of UCLA.
Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz said on Wednesday that he wanted to add at least one linebacker in the 2013 recruiting class. This weekend, the Hawkeyes played host to Ohio MLB Lavonte Robinson.
SELECTION SUNDAY IS upon us but as far as clarity goes, that will have to wait a few more hours. It could be San Antonio and the Alamo Bowl for Oregon State. Or it could be San Diego and the Holiday Bowl. Just as unclear, who the Beavers might square off against in either bowl.
IT WASN'T EXPECTED to be competitive, and it was anything but. Oregon State rolled 77-3 over Nicholls State to close out their regular season 9-3. It is the most points ever scored by OSU. Early on, Markus Wheaton became the Beavs' all-time leading receiver, finishing with 12 grabs for 123 yards and a touchdown.
