Superstar actor Matthew McConaughey’s speech might have been what provided Texas the motivation to upset tenth ranked Notre Dame Sunday night.

“The worst thing you can do is to have one hesitation and not be ready mentally for Sunday night, that you will regret for the rest of your life,” the “True Detective” star told the Longhorns players in a video released during the game.

Texas upset Notre Dame by the score of 50-47 in a double overtime thriller for the ages.

However, pretty hard for Notre Dame to be expected to win when the king of motivational speeches is speaking to their opponent.

Ten out of ten times you can’t overcome McConaughey’s motivation skills. Tough break for Notre Dame indeed.
