This DVD gives you the best seat in the house for a classic New Year's Day game that sold out in 48 hours. Heisman tropher winner Ricky Williams and his Texas Longhorns go toe to toe with the Bulldogs of Mississippi State University. Both teams came in with solid seasons. MSU was 8-4 and Texas was 8-3. MSU Head Coach Jackie Sherrill had previously coached Texas A&M to three consecutive Cotton Bowl appearances. He had a seven game winning steak against the Longhorns. On the other hand, Texas Head Coach Mack Brown was in his inaugural season with the Horns. During the first half, the Mississippi State defense did an incredible job keeping Ricky Williams out of the end zone. Taking advantage of the focus on Williams, Texas quarterback Major Applewhite scored twice with touchdown passes to Wane McGarity. Then in the second half, the Heisman Trophy winner exploded. Ricky Williams' stats for that day were staggering with 203 yards on 30 attempts and two touchdowns - the third best day on record. Relive the perfect ending for a storybook season, the Texas Longhorns' first New Year's Day bowl victory in 17 years! This DVD collectible is the perfect gift for the Texas enthusiast in your life!
