The Texas Longhorns are taking on the No. 10 Oregon Ducks in the Valero Alamo Bowl and are looking to send off Mack Brown with a win. Things aren’t going so well as they find themselves down 23-7 early in the third quarter.

The Longhorns did get a luck break on this play. Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota got a vicious face-mask from Longhorns defensive end Cedric Reed on a sack on third and goal. There wasn’t a flag thrown on the play despite it being very obvious.

Mariota fumbled on the play as well moving the Ducks back to the 14 yard line. They went for a field goal but didn’t convert.
