2012 Alamo Bowl: Oregon State Beavers vs Texas Longhorns

At first glance this game doesn't seem like it should be as good as it will likely turn out to be. The Beavers had a great season in the Pac-12, and are better offensively and defensively than the Longhorns, so it looks like Oregon State should prevail, and they might. However, the Longhorns usually play a much stronger running game, and if they can make it onto that type of game, they have a huge advantage. If Texas gets into the Beavers type of game, they will have a harder time, but the Longhorns showed they can win that way too against West Virginia. It should make for an interesting game that is likely to be closer than it should be.
