Texas will make a short postseason trip this year to face No. 15 Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl. The Longhorns (8-4) will need only to zip down Interstate 35 to San Antonio for the Dec. 29 game. It will be Texas' first appearance in the bowl since 2006.
Oregon State coach Mike Riley says it will also be a bit of a homecoming for Beavers running back Storm Woods, who is from nearby Pflugerville.
The Beavers (9-3) will be playing in a bowl game for the first time in three years.
