Longhorns Football History
The Big 12 Conference
is one of the top football conferences in the nation each and every season. The conference features the Iowa State Cyclones,
Kansas State Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks, Baylor Bears, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Oklahoma Sooners, TCU Horned Frogs, Texas Tech
Red Raiders, Texas Longhorns and West Virginia Mountaineers. But just having a few other powerhouses isn't enough to deter
the Longhorns, as they have been around since 1893 and have had more than a few magical seasons over the years. With four
national titles, including in 1963, 1969, 1970 and 2005, the Longhorns have one of the most renowned programs in the entire
country, and they also boast 32 conference titles to prove that they've been as dominant over the years as just about anyone.
Two players in the history of the Texas Longhorns football program have won the Heisman Trophy.
Who were they?
The answers are running backs Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams. Campbell won the award in 1977, and Williams
21 years later in 1998. Both backs went on to star in the National Football League, with Ricky Williams having so much buzz
around him that Mike Ditka famously traded an entire set of draft picks for the rights to draft him, including first and third-rounders
the following year as well.
