Update: The Longhorns got trampled 30-7 by the University of Oregon Ducks tonight in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. 

The Ducks ran two interceptions for touchdowns, spoiling what was the farewell game for Longhorns' Head Coach Mack Brown, who is retiring after 16 seasons with UT.

Despite the loss -- and a 30-21 record in his final four seasons -- the crowd gave Brown a warm send-off. UT athletic director Steve Patterson has said the team intends to name Brown's successor by January 15th. 

Original story: It's not unusual for the University of Texas at Austin's football team to appear in a post-season bowl game. But tonight, when the Longhorns take on Oregon in the Alamo Bowl, there is one twist: it is the last game as Head Coach for Mack Brown.

Brown became the Longhorns' 28th head football coach on December 4, 1997.

On December 15, 2013, after months of speculation, Brown made the announcement that he will retire at the end of the 2013 season.

After a few disappointing seasons since 2010, many fans and observers have considered the team to be underperforming and were clamoring for change.

Sports talk shows and news outlets have been all over the story of a Texas parent who filed a complaint about bullying after his son's high school football team lost a game last week by the score of 91-0.

If you haven't heard about what happened during that game, here's how Fort Worth's Star-Telegram sums up the story:

Former University of Texas quarterback James Street died Monday morning in his Austin home after suffering a heart attack. He was 65 years old.

Street played for Coach Darrell K. Royal from 1966 to 1969. He won all 20 games he started as quarterback – a feat no other Longhorn quarterback has repeated.

Following the weekend’s 44-23 loss to Ole Miss, Longhorn Football coach Mack Brown is realistic about the list of challenges facing the Longhorns and the dismal performance of his team so far this season.

“I’m more disappointed than anybody at the way we have started,” Brown said in a press conference on Monday. “It has kind of been the perfect storm. We’ve had injuries, we’ve had setbacks.”
