The Texas Longhorns beat the Cal Bears 21-10 in the 2011 Holiday Bowl to finish the season 8-5. The win improves Coach Mack Brown’s Texas bowl record to 9-4 and will likely provide some precious momentum for his young team as it heads into the off-season.
Freshman quarterback David Ash threw for a touchdown and caught one on his way to being named the game’s MVP. For Texas, though, the real star was the defense, which forced five turnovers and bedeviled Cal’s athletic quarterback.
