During the Vince Young and Mack Brown era, Texas football was at it’s highest peak. Longhorns were back on the map as one of the premier programs. In 2004, Vince Young and the Longhorns found themselves playing the Michigan Wolverines in the Rose Bowl after a 10-1 regular season. The win over the Wolverines gave this team plenty of confidence to return to Pasadena the following year for the BCS National Championship.
Following the Rose Bowl win over Michigan, Young said he needed to remind the team they weren’t done. He sits down with Aaron Murray as part of our Championship Moments series presented by Amway and XS Energy Drink to discuss his time in Austin. Murray asked Young if he felt they had something special brewing.
The rules were obviously important to Mack Brown and Vince Young. That two season run the Longhorns were one of the best in the country with a combined 24-1 record. That is still a really high bar that the current team is still chasing 15 years later.
