Vaz has played in six games, completing 94 of 157 passes for 1,286 yards and 11 touchdowns, with one interception.

Mannion has been in nine games, completing 200 of 309 for 2,446 yards and 15 TDs, with 13 picks.

Texas will win the game, rallying for a 31-27 victory and a 9-4 season after trailing 20-10 at the half.

OSU (9-4) is denied its first 10-win season since 2006.

Vaz completes 15 of 28 passes for 194 yards, with two interceptions. The Beavers manage a minus-four yards on offense in the fourth quarter against the furious Texas rush.
