Despite some truly bizarre play, No.19 Texas had little difficulty dispatching No.11 ASU in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl, 52-34, the Dallas Morning News reports. The play which will make all the highlight reels didn't even involve a player—Texas coach Mack Brown's stepson interfered with a ball off the sideline, ultimately leading to an Arizona State touchdown.
Despite competing hard in the second half after trailing 28-10, ASU had few solutions for the Longhorns' inventive play calling. The Sun Devils were also seriously hampered by turnovers, including two interceptions by QB Rudy Carpenter and a botched punt. The win earned the Texas seniors the distinction of being the first class to go 4-0 in Bowl games.
