Dallas Colleges: Hunter Lawrence
UT controlled their destiny all along. And now their destiny is to play for the national championship against SEC champ Alabama on Jan. 7 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
"I don't think there could be a better matchup than Texas and Alabama," UT coach Mack Brown said. "It's exciting to sit here at 13-0.
"Sounds like Alabama put a full game together [vs. Florida], as we'll have to in that game because Alabama's such a great team."
"He's the No. 1 player on this team. He's a hot commodity. We were yelling and coming off the sideline before it went through. We knew it was good."
Brown on playing Alabama: "We will be ready."
UT kicker Hunter Lawrence: "It feels great. We're going to the national title game. This team has worked real hard and this was a great game."
On the final kick: "I was trying to stay focused and tried not to get too nervous. It was a great feeling when it went through."
UT quarterback Colt McCoy: "This is just who this team is. We find a way every time, every game. I'm so blessed and thankful. My teammates and coaches trusted me to make the last drive, and Hunter Lawrence is just clutch every time."
