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.

Just like that with out Oregon’s offense even stepping on the field the Longhorns were down by a touchdown. Trying to win and beat one-time Heisman finalist Marcus Mariota is going to be even harder if the Longhorns are giving the Ducks points while on offense as well.

The good news is there is a lot of time to bounce back.
