12/28/17- *Michael Dickson, Jr, Texas, 6-2, 205
Texas scored two passing touchdowns in the first 11 minutes and then turned over the game to its defense and college football's best punter, doing just enough to beat Missouri 33-16 in the Academy Sports + Outdoor Texas Bowl, played Wednesday at NRG Stadium. It was Texas' first appearance in a bowl game since 2014 and first win in the postseason since the 2012 Alamo Bowl. It also granted the Longhorns (7-6) their first winning season since 2013, the last campaign coached in Austin by Mack Brown. Texas punter Michael Dickson, the Ray Guy award winner, had 10 punts downed inside the 20-yard line, becoming the first punter in the country this year to accomplish that feat. He had 11 total punts in the game -- two of which traveled more than 55 yards -- and buried Missouri (7-6) in poor field position all game.

The Longhorns did little on offense after the first quarter when they amassed 110 of their 280 total yards. Texas defense forced four turnovers and a safety and held Missouri quarterback Drew Luck to 269 yards passing and one touchdown. Texas marched 75 yards in five plays (and three big Missouri penalties) on its opening drive to a 22-yard TD pass from Shane Buechele to Daniel Young that granted the Longhorns an early 7-0 lead. The Longhorns went back to the same play to Young for 42 yards from Sam Ehlinger to set the table for their second touchdown, which came on a 7-yard connection from Ehlinger and John Burt and expanded the advantage to 14-0 with 3:58 to play in the first quarter. Missouri didn't have a first down until the 1:07 mark of the first quarter on their final possession of the opening 15 minutes; it was forced to punt on the opening play of the second quarter. - The Sports Xchange
