Texas 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 different Longhorns have won the Doak Walker Award, given to the best running back in the nation every year.
Can you name them?
The answer is Ricky Williams and Cedric Benson, though Williams stands out as a two-time winner.
On his way to being a high draft pick in the NFL, Williams became nothing shy of a legend at Texas thanks to stunning seasons
in both 1997 and 1998, as he was the very best back in the nation each year and solidified himself as an all-time great Longhorn.
Benson became the second Longhorn to win the award when he won in 2004.
