After losing the opportunity of going for the BCS Championship and the Big 12 title when they lost against Texas Tech two months ago at the last minute, the Longhorns are now celebrating their victory of last Monday, when they won the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.
Texas had the No 1 ranking in the BSC Standings, but they lost it due to the defeat that they suffered against Texas Tech and later the Sooners finished as the Big 12 champions after they defeated Missouri for the title and earned a pass for the BCS National Championship.
In the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, Texas had to face Ohio State and they tried to prove everyone that they were a good team and a possible squad to win the championship. And almost at the end of the game when everything seemed impossible and they were losing the game, Cosby caught a pass from quarter back Colt McCoy and run for 26 yards to convert a touchdown with only 16 left seconds in the clock, giving Texas a victory of 24-21 over the Buckeyes.
“We knew with the pride they’ve got and the tough games they’ve had in the BCS, they’d come in here and play tough and play great,” Texas coach Mack Brown said about Ohio State “There were two minutes and five seconds left and we had two timeouts,” He added. “For our offense, that’s a lot of time.”

He was named the Offensive Player of the Game due to his performance.
At the end of this game and with a final move, McCoy just planned with Cosby the last play to see what could happen and risked everything. McCoy told Cosby that the ball was going to him one last time since the defense had been giving him a hard time during the game and he wanted his receiver to challenge the opponent. Everybody thought, relying in the positive mentality of McCoy, things would go their way and they would get the victory, and that was exactly what happened at the end. Coach Brown expressed that he was very proud of McCoy because he did the best that he could under the pressure that he was having, especially when he saved his team j
