Who deserves the top spot, Ricky Williams or Earl Campbell? Or, perhaps someone else? Where do Roosevelt Leaks, Eric Metcalf, Chris Gilbert, Cedric Benson, A.J. "Jam" Jones and James Saxton fall on the list? What's the greatest bowl victory in UT history? Was it the 2006 Rose Bowl? Or, was it the 1970 Cotton Bowl over Notre Dame? Where do you rank dominations like Texas' 42-0 victory over Maryland in the 1978 Sun Bowl or dramatic, close wins like the 32-27 win over Pittsburgh in the 1987 Bluebonnet Bowl or Major Applewhite's come-from-behind heroics in the 2001 Holiday Bowl?
