34NCAA FBThe Night Is Young's
Date / Jan 4, 2006
Location / Rose Bowl | Pasadena, Calif.
Moment / The 2006 BCS Championship featured a pair of unbeaten powerhouses, but in the end, it was Texas and QB Vince Young who stood tallest. Young, who accounted for a record 467 yards of offense, rushed in the game-winning score with 19 seconds remaining to lift the Longhorns over the USC Trojans 41-38.
Impact / Players from this instant classic dominated the NFL draft, with four of them going in the top 10 (Young went No. 3). An NCAA investigation would eventually conclude USC's Reggie Bush received illegal benefits while at the school, causing the Trojan to vacate their 12 wins from that season.
