The Texas Longhorns are one of the most successful college football programs in the country, and their performances in bowl games have been equally successful. The Longhorns rank second all-time in NCAA bowl game appearances, having been selected over 50 times, and are third all-time in bowl game victories. Texas has played in the Cotton Bowl more than any other school in the country and holds the record for most Cotton Bowl wins at 11. Longhorn fans expect for their teams to make it to a bowl game every season, and these days the expectations are higher than ever for the team in burnt orange. Even 9-win seasons are looked upon as not good enough.
Texas won a National Championship in 2005 with one of the most thrilling college football games in history, a 41-38 come-from-behind win over the USC Trojans. The game was held in the historic Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA., and had 93,468 in attendance and was the most-watched bowl game in the BCS era. The 2009 Fiesta Bowl is another one that Texas fans won’t soon forget, when they capped off a thrilling final drive with a TD pass from Colt McCoy to Jordan Shipley with 26 seconds left for the win.
Texas fans travel to bowl games very well, and alumni are spread all across the country to set up Longhorn events in every city the Horns visit. Whether it be the Holiday Bowl in San Diego or the Cotton Bowl in Arlington (where over 100K fans can pack in), expect to see a large contingent of fans in burnt orange with their horns up.
