The Texas Longhorns won't fall past the 2011 Holiday Bowl, according to a certain Horns running back, who spread a little holiday cheer on Twitter a few hours before official announcements made their way out.
@ChipBrownOB Texas' D.J. Monroe just confirmed on Twitter that Texas is headed to the Holiday Bowl.
Their opponent will be an upper-tier Pac-12 team, perhaps the California Golden Bears or Utah Utes. If the Washington Huskies topple for any reason, surely the Holiday will happily accept them. There's always the chance of a Texas-UCLA rematch, though ... No, I'm pretty sure we've seen enough of that.
