AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -The video on the stadium scoreboard Saturday replayed the moment Texas fans have committed to memory.
Vince Young took the snap, bolted to his right and crossed the goal line, lifting the Longhorns to the 2005 national championship with a 41-38 win over Southern California in the Rose Bowl.
On Saturday, Texas retired Young's No. 10 jersey, honoring the former Longhorns' quarterback with a short ceremony before the kickoff of the season opener against Florida Atlantic.
``I definitely want to thank our fans,'' Young told the crowd, which saluted him with a standing ovation as he flashed a ``Hook'em Horns'' with his right hand. ``Ya'll's heart, ya'll's spirit ... ya'll mean a whole lot to me.''
Young, who now plays for the Tennessee Titans, was presented with a framed burnt-orange jersey on the field and got a hug from Texas coach Mack Brown.
Young was 30-2 as a starter at Texas, leading the Longhorns to a 13-0 record in 2005. He left Texas after the Rose Bowl win over USC for the NFL.
He joins Earl Campbell (20), Bobby Layne (22), Ricky Williams (34) and Tommy Nobis (60) as the only Texas football players to have their numbers retired.
