Texas win streak impressive, even if second to USC
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) _ As the season rolled on and Texas piled up one victory after another, coach Mack Brown really began to appreciate Pete Carroll and the USC Trojans. Brown -- considering his own 19-game winning streak -- marvels at Southern California's run of 34 in a row and counting.
He even called Carroll after the Trojans hung on to beat Fresno State 50-to-42 for U-S-C's 33rd straight win. The Trojans coach told him the first rule about managing a win streak: don't talk about the win streak.
One of the streaks will end tomorrow night when top-ranked USC and number two Texas meet in the Rose Bowl for the national championship.
