Going Bowling: UT, Other Texas Teams Head Into Post-Season Play

The Texas Longhorns will play Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio this post-season.

The Longhorns have played the Oregon State Beavers twice. UT won both times. Oregon State does have a better record and a higher rank this season. The game is Dec. 29.

Some expected the Longhorns to head to the Cotton Bowl. Instead, that’s where UT’s Big 12 rival Oklahoma will play former Big 12 rival Texas A&M on Jan. 4.

The Sooners lost out on a chance to play in a BCS bowl when Mid-American Conference champ Northern Illinois moved up in the rankings and earned an automatic bid.

The Baylor Bears will take on UCLA in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27. Texas Tech will play Minnesota in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 28. TCU plays Michigan State Dec. 29 in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

Other non-Big 12 Texas teams headed to bowls include Southern Methodist University—the Mustangs will play Fresno State in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl on Dec. 24. Rice University will take on Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl Dec. 29.
