One of the most exciting players the game has ever seen, Vince Young had a record of 30-2 as a starter. He owns multiple Longhorn records including 1,079 single-season and 3,127 career rushing yards by a quarterback and 37 career rushing touchdowns. Young also passed for 6,050 yards, his rushing totals rank sixth in Texas history. He led the Longhorns to a conference title and a perfect 13-0 season after winning the BCS National Championship Game against USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl. Regarded as one of the greatest games in college football history, Young earned MVP honors after completing 30-of-40 passes for 267 yards, rushing for 200 yards (a Rose Bowl record among quarterbacks) and delivering the game-winning eight-yard touchdown run on fourth down with 19 seconds remaining. The win capped a remarkable season that saw the team captain become the first player in FBS history with more than 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a single season. He was drafted 3rd overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. He played six seasons in the league with the Titans and Philadelphia Eagles.
