In the Valero Alamo Bowl on Monday night, the Texas Longhorns have a tough task in the final game of the Mack Brown era as they take on the powerful, speedy Oregon Ducks of the Pac-12 Conference.

The Longhorns fell behind early due to an error by QB Case McCoy, which resulted in an interception returned for a touchdown.

However, Brown hasn’t been around this long for nothing, and when Texas got the ball back a little bit later, they took a page out of the Stanford playbook against the Ducks by running the ball, and running it rather well.

The way to beat the Ducks, as we found out from the guys in Palo Alto, is by utilizing a strong run game, thus keeping the ball away from that fast-paced offense.

And Texas certainly has the backs to get that done, like Malcolm Brown showed here as he spun his way for a first down:

 

That would lead to an eventual Texas touchdown, tying the game up at seven.
