A list of the best Texas Longhorns football players of all time. Texas is one of the most highly regarded and historic football programs of all time. The program began in 1893 and currently has the second most wins in NCAA history, trailing only Michigan. Texas is also recognized for their post-season appearances ranking second in number of bowl game appearances (51) and ranked fourth in bowl game victories (27). Why are the Longhorns one of the greatest college football teams ever? Because of the number of outstanding players who have worn the burnt orange. Many of the best players in college football history have played for Texas. Throughout the school's history, Texas's roster has been filled with some college football's biggest stars.

The quarterback led Texas to an iconic victory over heavily favored USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl. Young carried the team to win the national championship in one of the greatest performances by a quarterback in college football history. While his NFL career didn't pan out, in the eyes of Texas Longhorn fans, there is nothing that will ruin the memory of one of the greatest Longhorns in school history.
