The Ohio State Buckeyes came into the Fiesta Bowl on the heels of losses in the past two National Championship Games to SEC teams. Texas came in as a one-loss team with a true claim that they should be playing in the title game over Oklahoma, who they had beaten earlier this year.
Texas was supposed to roll.
They didn't. Trailing 6-3 at halftime, the Longhorns scored two unanswered touchdowns to take a 17-6 lead, but Ohio State rattled off 15 straight after that to take a 21-17 lead with 2:05 to play.
I remember thinking one thing after they scored: "That's way too much time left on the clock."
It was, as Texas, led by QB Colt McCoy, marched down the field, scoring on a 26-yard strike to Quan Cosby (above) with 16 seconds to play for a dramatic come-from-behind 24-21 win.
