Vince Young had a performance to remember.
Stat Line: 30-of-40, 267 YDS; 19 CAR, 200 YDS, 3 TD (W 41-38 vs. USC)
Why He’s Here
Expecting anyone else?
Longhorns quarterback Vince Young was dominant in pulling Texas to the 2006 BCS title. His 467 yards of total offense set a Rose Bowl record.
In a game that the Longhorns defense almost let slip away—the Trojans led 38-26 with under five minutes remaining—Young willed his team back into the game.
Two of his three touchdowns came in the game’s final minutes—the first on a 17-yard scramble, breaking tackles along the way.
The last is a play that has been replayed over and over again, in which Young found the end zone on an eight-yard run on 4th-and-5.
Needless to say, it’s hard to find a more impressive performance than this one.
