SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Texas beat Oregon State, 31-27, after two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter of the Alamo Bowl tonight from David Ash.
Texas’ defense caused Oregon State’s offensive line trouble all game, finishing with 10 sacks and harrying QB Cody Vaz at every turn.
The scoring started with Trevor Romaine’s 29-yard field goal with 9:12 remaining in the first quarter, the result of a 5-play, 25-yard drive.
Texas tied the game, 3-3, with Nick Jordan’s 40-yard field goal with 6:46 remaining in the first quarter.
The game’s first touchdown came off Storm Woods’ 12-yard rush with 1:33 left in the first quarter to put Oregon State ahead, 10-3.
The Longhorns would answer just inside the second quarter when Marquise Goodwin, a former U.S. champion in the long jump and an Olympian in August, rushed 64 yards for a touchdown, the fourth play of a 75-yard drive with 14:40 remaining.
Romaine’s 37-yard field goal with 9:20 to go in the second quarter put OSU back ahead, 13-10. It came after a drive lasting 5 minutes, 20 seconds, the longest scoring drive for either team of the game.
With 3:46 remaining in the first half, Terron Ward capped a 47-yard drive with a nine-yard rush TD to give OSU a 20-10 lead.
The first score of the third quarter was Texas quarterback David Ash’s 11-yard touchdown run with 5:17 left in the third quarter, a run that included leaping over two defenders at the goal line.
Storm Woods’ second rush touchdown of the game nearly ended the third quarter, with a two-yard rushing score with just nine seconds remaining for a 27-17 lead. The run capped a five-play, 42-yard drive.
After Ash threw a 15-yard touchdown to Johnathan Gray to get the lead cut to 27-24, he connected with Goodwin for a 36-yard touchdown pass in the back of the end zone with just 2:24 left in the game. It marked the Longhorns’ first lead of the game.
