BCS Era No. 6 -- Texas

(From BCS Guru)

Overall Record: 103-25 (.805), 2nd
BCS Bowl Record: 2-0 (2, 12th)
National Titles (Game Record): 1 (1-0)
Final AP Rankings: 15-21-12-5-6-12-5-1-13-10 (Top 5: 4/Top 10: 5)

Without a doubt, Texas has been the most consistent program in the BCS Era – which coincided with Mack Brown’s tenure in Austin. The Longhorns have won at least nine games in each of the 10 seasons and finished no lower than No. 13 in the final AP poll since 2000.

But aside from its lone championship season of 2005, when Vince Young authored the miracle finish against two-time defending champion USC, Texas has had a frustrating time in the BCS Era. The inability to beat Oklahoma in the Red River Shootout, including a five-game losing streak from 2000-2004, relegated the Horns to just two BCS bowl appearances.
