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. Those hopes are off to a rough start.
On the first drive of the game, the Longhorns were facing a third and 18 situation deep in their own territory. Quarterback Case McCoy dropped back and threw a pass and it was picked off by Avery Patterson.
Patterson then returned the kick 37-yards for the touchdown. He snaked through some Texas players to find the end zone but was relatively untouched on the return.
Then later in the first half Marcus Mariota completed a pass to Josh Huff who took it 16-yards for the touchdown. After getting in the end zone he channeled another Texas star and did A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel’s touchdown celebration, the money gesture.
