Photos: Oregon football — Ducks dismantle Texas Longhorns 30-7 in 21st Alamo Bowl

Posted by Michael Arellano and Ryan Kang on Monday, Dec. 30 at 8:06 pm.

After heading to halftime with a 20-7 lead, the Ducks managed to hold the Texas Longhorns scoreless throughout the entire second half during the 21st Alamo Bowl in the Alamodome. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota had 386 total yards and Oregon made two interceptions returned for touchdowns, upsetting an underdog victory for Texas head coach Mack Brown’s final game after 16 years with the Longhorns program. Mariota was named offensive player of the game and cornerback Avery Patterson received defensive player of the game recognition. Before making it to the 50-yard line to exchange final words with Mack Brown, Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich was soaked by a pair of Gatorade showers by his enthusiastic players.
