SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Oregon's Marcus Mariota had 386 total yards as the Ducks beat Texas 30-7 in Monday's Alamo Bowl, spoiling the farewell of Longhorns coach Mack Brown.

In the day's other bowl games Davis Webb led Texas Tech past Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl, Navy downed Middle Tennessee in the Armed Forces Bowl, and Mississippi took the Music City Bowl by defeating Georgia Tech.

Oregon made two interceptions and dominated throughout against Texas, even though their famously high-powered offense scored just one touchdown, when Josh Huff turned a short pass from Mariota into a spectacular 16-yard sprint to the end zone.

Brown received warm goodbyes from a sellout crowd in what was practically a home game for Texas.

Texas Tech's Davis Webb threw for 403 yards and tied the Holiday Bowl record with four touchdown passes, leading the Red Raiders to a 37-23 victory over Arizona State.

Webb tied the record set by Brigham Young's Jim McMahon in 1980 and matched by Kansas State's Brian Kavanagh in 1995 and Texas' Major Applewhite in 2001.

Webb threw TD passes of 18 and 21 yards to Jakeem Grant, 1 yard to Rodney Hall and 23 yards to Bradley Marquez, all in the first half.

The Red Raiders scored on four of their first five drives to take a 27-6 lead 5 minutes into the second quarter.

Navy's Keenan Reynolds ran for 86 yards with two more touchdowns in the 24-6 win over Middle Tennessee.

Reynolds had a 3-yard score to cap the opening drive and added a 1-yarder in the fourth quarter. Already with the collegiate record for touchdowns rushing by a quarterback, Reynolds upped his nation-leading total to 31 this season, matching Colorado State running back Kapri Bibbs.

Middle Tennessee was held to a season low in points.

Mississippi's Bo Wallace ran for two touchdowns and threw for another score in the Rebels' 25-17 win over Georgia Tech.

The quarterback made up for his three turnovers in the Egg Bowl overtime loss by throwing for 256 yards and running for 86 more, giving him the school record for total yards in a season and most completions in a season, topping Eli Manning for both.

Ole Miss now has won six straight bowls and 10 of the past 11.

Georgia Tech has lost eight of nine bowls. The Yellow Jackets scored 10 points in the fourth quarter as they tried to rally before a safety with 4:22 left ended their last chance.
