Football, Men's Basketball and Baseball accomplish another milestone
AUSTIN, Texas -- The University of Texas and winning athletics programs have become synonymous over the years. During the 2006-07 academic year, the Longhorns' football, men's basketball and baseball teams combined to accomplish a feat that could not be matched by any other school in the nation.
Texas was the only Division I athletics program to win 10 football games, 25 men's basketball games and 40 baseball games during the 2006-07 season. UT and Louisville were the only two Division I programs to win a bowl game and make the NCAA Men's Basketball and NCAA Baseball Championship fields.
Texas Football posted a 10-3 mark, highlighted by a 26-24 win against Iowa in the Alamo Bowl. This marked UT's fifth bowl victory in the last six years, including two BCS triumphs and a BCS Championship Game victory. Texas is the only team in the country to have won at least 10 games in each of the last six seasons. UT's 93 victories over the last nine years are the most by any school in the nation during this time.
Texas Basketball registered a 25-10 record and advanced to the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament. The Longhorns are one of nine schools nationally to have advanced to each of the last nine NCAA Tournaments. Texas also is one of just five schools (Texas, Connecticut, Duke, Kansas and Pittsburgh) to have advanced to the NCAA Tournament's "Sweet 16" in at least four of the last six seasons. The Horns made trips to the "Sweet 16" in 2002 and 2004, the "Elite Eight" in 2006 and the Final Four in 2003.
Texas Baseball logged a 46-17 record and claimed its second consecutive Big 12 title and the 74th league championship in the program's history. The Longhorns made their ninth consecutive NCAA Regional appearance. Entering this year's College World Series, UT is the only team to claim multiple national crowns (2002, 2005) since 2000. The Horns are one of only three teams (Texas, Cal State Fullerton and Rice) to have made at least five CWS appearances over the last eight years.
