Texas fought hard to give Mack Brown a final win as a going away present, but Oregon was just too much for the Longhorns to handle and ultimately pulled away for a 30-7 Alamo Bowl win in San Antonio on Monday night.

Brown resigned on December 14, amid heavy pressure from the school, after a 16-year tenure that produced a 158-48 record, including a 98-33 mark in Big 12 games. His teams went bowling every year except 2010 and went 10-5 in those bowl games. He also led the team to the 2005 national championship and a return trip in 2009 that came up short against Alabama. His career coaching record is 244-122-1 and trails only Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech among active coaches.

The bowl loss was only the 2nd for Texas in its last 9 tries and lowered the school's overall bowl record to 27-23-2.

It was Oregon's third straight bowl win and raised the Ducks' bowl record to 12-15.

Oregon finished the season with an 11-2 record while Texas fell to 8-5.

The Congrove Computer Rankings at projected Oregon to win by 7.01.
