Texas Longhorns: Most Clutch Team in History?

Woke up this morning, turned on ESPN Classic, the 2001 Holiday Bowl was on. Down 36-17 with 3:51 in the 3rd, The Major leads the Horns to win it 47-43. I remember watching this game with my dad and stepmom and going nuts. At the time, I believe it was the biggest comeback in Texas history. Flash forward 3 years later to the 2004 Ok. State game in Austin. Down 28 points, VY leads Texas back in its biggest comeback ever to win 42-35, scoring 28 point in the 2nd half and the defense shutting out the cowboys. Rose Bowls of 2005 and 2006, Fiesta Bowl 2009. Tech game in '06, Nebraska and Ok. State games of '07. Ryan Bailey's kick in the snow against Nebraska in '06, and of course the comeback this year on Dec. 5th. Obviously, in the Mack Brown era, Texas is one of the most exciting, clutch, heart-attack-inducing teams of the past 10 years, if not THE most. But Texas has had some great comebacks before Brown's tenure. There were some epic comebacks against A&M in the 60s under Royal, and the 1969 Big Shootout comeback against Arkansas is considered one of the greatest games in college football history. I admit, I'm not too familiar with the epic comebacks of other elite programs, but, are the Texas Longhorns THE most clutch team in college football history?
