PASADENA – The streak is history, and so too is USC’s claim on the title “greatest of all time.” Vince Young made sure of that when he strutted 8 yards into the end zone with 19 seconds left to give Texas a 41-38 victory over the two-time defending champs in the Rose Bowl on Wednesday night. For the second consecutive year, Young turned college football’s most storied bowl game into his own personal showcase. “This was a night for champions, a championship night,” USC coach Pete Carroll said. “Two teams battled all night and did a phenomenal job. … If you have to hand it over, step aside for somebody. That’s a heck of a football team.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonIn a Bowl Championship Series title game that was for once as high on drama as it was on hype, the Longhorns (13-0) erased a 12-point deficit with two touchdowns in the final 4 minutes, 3 seconds to snap USC’s 34-game winning streak and keep the Trojans from becoming the first team ever to win three consecutive Associated Press national titles. Texas’ national title is the fourth in school history and the first since 1970 when it shared the crown with Nebraska. And it gives Young the redemption he coveted after finishing second to USC tailback Reggie Bush in the Heisman Trophy vote. Young completed 30 of 40 passes for 267 yards and rushed 19 times for an additional 200 yards. He ran for three touchdowns on runs of 14, 17 and 8 yards. USC tailback LenDale White ran for 124 yards on 20 carries and scored touchdowns on runs of 4, 3 and 12 yards. But the bruiser came up a yard short on his final run of the game, a 1-yard blast on fourth-and-2 that gave Texas the ball with 2:01 to play.
