After winning a national championship, expectations were high for Mack Brown's second season. The Horns put together a 5 game winning streak and finished 1st place in the Southern Division of the Pac12 with a 9-5 record in 1999. It has been said the defensive line was possibly the best in school history. That year Casey Hampton led the team in tackles with 101, including 21 tackles for a loss. Shaun Rogers had an unbelievable 27 tackles for a loss, while Aaron Humphrey led the team with 30 quarterback pressures. Major Applewhite, who is currently a member of the coaching staff, was the quarterback. This fabulous football commemorates the Longhorns victory over Oklahoma State University. A Burnt Orange style blood bath! OSU's quarterbacks were sacked 9 times! Hook'em Horns!
