No. 23 Texas Longhorns vs. No. 13 Oregon State Beavers
Dec. 29, 6:45 p.m., ESPN
AlamoDome (San Antonio, Texas)
Line: Oregon St. -3.5
Talk about the haves versus the have-nots. Texas has more resources and built-in advantages than any other program in the nation. Oregon St. may be the most anonymous AQ-level program going.
Yet, it's Mike Riley's resourceful Beavers who enter this edition of the Alamo Bowl as the favorites, sporting the better record and stronger body of work. If OSU is a delicious Double-Double from the Beavers' favorite postgame burger joint, In-N-Out, UT is an overpriced steak.
Let's see if Mack Brown can sprinkle in some secret herbs and spices to end the season with a satisfying final course.
Sexiness: Ruth Wilson
Who? Much like Oregon St., the alluring star of the British television series "Luther" toils in relative obscurity here in the United States.
