Vince Young and Cat Osterman: Big 12 Athletes of the Year - ESPY Commercial

Vince Young and Cat Osterman have been named the Big XII Players of the Year. Vince Young led the Texas football team to a last minute victory in the Rose Bowl and became the first player to pass for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season. Cat Osterman had a 38-4 record for the season with a 0.42 ERA. She pitched 36 complete games with 28 shutouts, 5 no-hitters, 11 one-hitters, 12 two-hitters and also set a CWS record with 18 strikeouts in a single game.

So it's not too surprising that Cat and Vince were also nominated for the same award at the 2006 ESPYS. Cat won an award for best female college athlete, Young won for best championship performance, and UT's victory over USC in the Rose Bowl was named best game.

Here's one of ESPN's promos for the show about Vince Young in the Rose Bowl.
