The class, led by top-ranked QB Vince Young (pictured), helped lead the Longhorns to their first BCS bowl game under Mack Brown (a 38-37 Rose Bowl win over Michigan to cap the '04 season) and led Texas to its first national championship since 1969. The '05 team not only ran the table, but, in the title game, defeated a USC team that had won 34 straight contests and boasted two Heisman Trophy winners.
