The HornsNation staff picks the Valero Alamo Bowl:

Texas 38, Oregon State 35
This game is so hard to pick because Texas is more talented than Oregon State. As most fans and media members that have covered this team know, the Texas issues are much more about that patch of grass between the ears as opposed to the talent that runs out on the grass. Texas will start well on offense, but I believe Oregon State will as well. I would not be shocked at all for it to be a tie game or close to it going into the half. The defense that makes the best adjustments will win this game for their team. We are all talking about the offenses but this game will come down to the defenses. Call me crazy but I'm going with the talent and desperate seniors on the Texas defense. Texas wins a close one.
