Dec. 29, 2012

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. - A 10-point lead in the fourth quarter wasn't enough to stop an inspired effort from the Texas Longhorns, who rallied to beat Oregon State 31-27 in the Alamo Bowl Saturday at the Alamodome.

The Beavers, who entered ranked No. 15 in the nation, got 118 yards and pair of touchdowns from Storm Woods and a pair of field goals from Trevor Romaine, but couldn't sustain a drive when needed and missed their chance at a 10-win season.

David Ash threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Goodwin with 2:24 left in the game for the go-ahead points, completing the comeback from a 27-17 deficit.

OSU earned the lead on a two-yard run by Woods with nine seconds left in the third quarter.

The Beavers finished at 9-4 on the year, after winning their first six games and reaching No. 8 in the BCS Rankings. Three of the four losses were by four points or less.

OSU quarterback Cody Vaz threw for 194 yards, but was intercepted twice and lost 81 yards to the Texas defensive pressure.
