For the second consecutive season, the Texas Longhorns were able to end a disappointing season on a positive note, beating the Oregon State Beavers 31-27 to win the Alamo Bowl. The win shows that this program still has some fight courtesy of its seniors and up-and-coming stars, giving it a solid starting point for the offseason.

While this is obviously not where the 'Horns and their fans wanted to be at the end of the season, a comeback win over a Top 15 team will do just fine for now. The win also gives Mack Brown some respite, as a loss would undoubtedly have brought heavy scrutiny upon him and his staff.

Now Brown, who is now 10-4 in bowl games at Texas, and guys like newly-minted offensive coordinator Major Applewhite can focus on building upon this success. Most notably, starting with the recruiting class, which should get a boost from what the team showed in this victory.

But this a victory that belongs, first and foremost, to the players that gave their best performances when the team needed them most. Read on for the grades for all 22 of Texas' starters and how each contributed to Texas' biggest win of the season.
