Longhorns get cereal bowl win: Wheaties cover
AUSTIN, Texas -- The national champion Texas Longhorns are going to get their Wheaties.
General Mills said it will produce a commemorative Wheaties box to mark the Longhorns' 41-38 win over Southern California on Wednesday night in the Rose Bowl.
The cereal box will feature Texas coach Mack Brown and a Texas Longhorns helmet on the front. The Longhorns box is scheduled to appear on Texas grocery shelves in two weeks and nationwide starting next month.
General Mills said Texas is the first national college football champion to be featured on a Wheaties box since Nebraska in 1997, after coach Tom Osborne's Cornhuskers won a share of the national title.
