The best Texas Longhorn teams have had some of the best clutch players in the nation leading the way. These 2013 'Horns have a few of their own, including their somewhat maligned quarterback David Ash and star corner Quandre Diggs.
Whether they have enough to win at the highest level remains to be seen. Though lost in last year's disappointing season is the fact that the Longhorns played in six games that were decided by 10 points or less, five of which were decided by one score.
In those games, Texas was 4-2, had three game-winning drives, ground out first downs to run out the clock twice and lost the other two games by a combined 10 points. The Longhorns were not a great team, but nobody can tell them that they shied away from the moment.
When those moments come again in 2013, these are the players that Mack Brown and his staff know that they can lean on based on their past big-game performance.
