The University of Texas, the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic and all of college football lost a legend on Tuesday night when former Longhorn head coach Darrell Royal passed away.

In 20 seasons, Coach Royal guided the Longhorns to 11 SWC titles, assembled a staggering 167-47-5 record, and produced 26 All-Americans. His Longhorns played in 10 Cotton Bowl Classics, including six consecutive appearances from 1969 through 1974.
