The 1982 Cotton Bowl Classic was a post-season college football game played on January 1, 1982. It pitted the Texas Longhorns and the Alabama Crimson Tide, entering with identical 9–1–1 records.

Entering the fourth quarter trailing by 10, the Longhorns scored their first points with a quarterback draw by Robert Brewer on a 3rd-and-long with 10:38 remaining.[1] On Texas' next possession, Terry Orr scored from eight yards out to cap an 11-play, 80-yard drive to put the Longhorns up 14-10 with 2:05 remaining. Alabama's Joey Jones returned the ensuing kickoff to the Texas 38 yard line, and Alabama quarterback Walter Lewis took over with 1:54 left. On the very next play, UT's William Graham picked off a Lewis pass at the one. The Longhorns took a safety to insure better field position and make the final margin 14–12.[2]
