Inside the Gameplan: A viewer’s guide to Texas’ 2006 Rose Bowl win over USC

In the midst of the national quarantine, ESPN is airing Texas’ 2006 Rose Bowl victory over the USC Trojans for a national audience Thursday at 7 p.m. Central. That win yielded Texas’ 4th national championship and their first since 1970. It cemented Mack Brown as an all-time Texas coach and figure, and quarterback Vince Young as an all-time football legend. It also crushed the “three-Pete” USC narrative that Generation Z probably doesn’t fully understand or recall like older generations.
