The Texas Longhorns will play in the Alamo Bowl for the second straight year and will face a team from the same state as last time.

But instead of Oregon State, whom the Longhorns beat 31-27 a year ago, Texas (8-4) will face the the No. 10 Oregon Ducks on Dec. 30 at San Antonio’s Alamodome.

While Oregon didn’t land an at-large BCS bid, it did earn a date against Texas and its first Alamo Bowl trip in one of the more intriguing matchups of the upcoming bowl season.

Oregon (10-2) won its first eight games and was in the national title discussion before losing at Stanford on Nov. 7. The Ducks also got blown out at Arizona before rallying to beat rival Oregon State 36-35.

The Longhorns had a chance to win the Big 12 title and play in a BCS bowl game but lost to Baylor 30-10 Saturday.

Texas opened league play with six straight wins before losing two of its last three.

“We didn’t finish the way we wanted to, but we’re going to go back to work and get after [Oregon]. Because these guys are like Baylor. They can score fast,” Texas coach Mack Brown said.

Texas is 2-0 in the Alamo Bowl, having also beaten Iowa in 2006.
