Ducks defeat Longhorns in Alamo Bowl

December 31, 2013
The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Marcus Mariota accounted for 386 total yards and No. 10 Oregon returned a pair of interceptions for scores, spoiling Texas coach Mack Brown's farewell with a runaway 30-7 victory in the Alamo Bowl on Monday.

The Ducks (11-2) dominated, though their high-powered offense scored just one touchdown, when Josh Huff turned a short pass from Mariota into a spectacular 16-yard sprint to the end zone.

Mariota, a Saint Louis School graduate, passed for 253 yards and ran for 133 on 15 carries. Derrick Malone and Avery Patterson each scored on interceptions of passes by the Longhorns' Case McCoy.

Texas finished 8-5 in their last of 16 seasons under Brown.

The game was also the last for Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti, who announced Friday that he's retiring after 38 seasons in football.
