Oregon’s 30-7 win in the 2013 Valero Alamo Bowl spoiled Mack Brown’s last
game in a 16-year run as head coach of the Longhorns. Mark Helfrich had
11 wins in his first season as the Ducks head coach, which made him the
winningest Oregon first-year head coach in program history.
This was the Ducks fifth 11+ win season in the school’s history. Oregon
quarterback and future Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota broke the Valero
Alamo Bowl record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 133 yards.
Oregon senior receiver Josh Huff’s 104 receiving yards helped him set the
new school single-season receiving record with 1,140 yards. Huff also hauled
in his 12th touchdown of the season in the second quarter, tying the Oregon
single-season record for receiving touchdowns.
The loss was Texas’ first at the Valero Alamo Bowl, having won in 2006
against Iowa and the year before in 2012 vs. Oregon State. Junior running back
Malcolm Brown was the offensive standout for Texas as he rushed for 130 yards
on 26 carries.
The standing room only crowd of 65,918 was the second highest attendance in
Valero Alamo Bowl history and the game’s third straight sellout. With 7.6 viewers, the
2013 Valero Alamo Bowl was the 7th most-watched non-BCS game in ESPN history.
2013 Offensive MVP Marcus
Mariota sets record for most
rushing yards in the Valero
Alamo Bowl by a quarterback in a
victory over Texas.
