LONDON -- With minutes left to play and the biggest game in club football once again in his hands, Arjen Robben made sure he didnt miss this time. Robben found redemption at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, scoring the winner in the 89th minute of the Champions League final to give Bayern a 2-1 victory over German rival Borussia Dortmund -- ending four years of frustration for his team in Europes biggest tournament and erasing some of the painful memories of his penalty miss in last years final. "I dont know how many times I dreamed about it," Robben said. "Everybody I spoke to before the game I said, Today is going to be the night and were going to do it. To do it in the end is an unbelievable feeling." This was a win that was long in the making for both Robben and Bayern, not only because of the stubborn challenge from a Dortmund side that refused to accept its status as underdog in the clubs biggest game in 16 years. Bayern had lost two of the last three Champions League finals, including the gut-wrenching defeat in a penalty shootout to Chelsea last year in its own stadium in Munich. Robben missed a penalty in extra time in that game, a mistake that stung the Bayern fans so much that many temporarily turned against him. This time, when he carried the European Cup toward the thousands of celebrating red-and-white fans and raised it over his head, there was nothing but undivided adulation in return. "There are so many emotions, especially after where we came from. Last year was such a disappointment," Robben said. "Weve spoken about it. The last four years, weve been in the final three times. It needed to happen but you still have to do it." In a game that featured a slew of chances for both teams, Mario Mandzukic put Bayern ahead in the 60th minute at Wembley Stadium before Ilkay Gundogan levelled from the penalty spot eight minutes later, after defender Dante fouled Marco Reus in the area. Robben had missed two great chances in the first half, reviving memories of last year and even of the 2010 World Cup final, when the winger missed the Netherlands best chance when he came one-on-one with Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas and missed. Even Bayern great Franz Beckenbauer, the clubs honorary president, said on TV during halftime that "evidently in the big games he just cant score." But this time, he could. Robben ran onto Franck Riberys backheeled flick-on in the area and calmly slotted the ball past goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller to give Bayern its first Champions League victory since 2001. Bayern lost to Inter Milan in the 2010 final. "Thats three finals and of course you dont want the stamp of a loser, you dont want that tag," Robben said. "It was a sense of finally. It was unbelievable, I cant describe whats going through my mind." Robben also set up the first goal for Bayern, taking a pass from Ribery and drawing Weidenfeller out toward the touchline before squaring for Mandzukic, who could hardly miss from a few yards out. But the lead didnt last long. Dante clumsily clattered into Reus in the area, and Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli pointed to the spot. Gundogan sent Manuel Neuer the wrong way before calmly slotting his spot kick into the right side of the net. But Dortmund seemed to tire toward the end, and Bayern had a couple of good chances before Robbens late winner. "Its hard to deal with the disappointment right now, especially if you concede the goal in the 89th minute," Dortmund defender Mats Hummels said. "In the end we had become a little tired and Bayern took advantage." The European Cup title caps a spectacular season for Bayern, which broke a host of Bundesliga records in running away with the German league title -- finishing an unprecedented 25 points ahead of second-place Dortmund. It can still complete a treble, as it faces Stuttgart in the German Cup final next Saturday. Regardless of that result, coach Jupp Heynckes will leave the German powerhouse in perfect style. Heynckes, who is stepping down at the end of the season, won his second Champions League trophy after leading Real Madrid to the title in 1998. He will be replaced by Pep Guardiola next season, but the former Barcelona coach will have a hard time improving on this Bayern side -- which dismantled the Spanish giants 7-0 on aggregate in the semifinals. "Its incredible what the team had achieved in the last few years. And today we were finally rewarded. We had to overcome a lot of setbacks," Bayern captain Philipp Lahm said. "There was so much pressure, it was enormous. After you lose two finals, if you lose again you dont know if youll get another chance. The pressure was so great, Ive never felt so much pressure before. The international titles were missing, we never won a big international title for this generation." For Dortmund, its another bitter runner-up finish to its main rival, having seen Bayern end its two-year hold on the Bundesliga title. "We are very proud to have given them a good contest," Weidenfeller said. "But we didnt manage to win. We gave our best. Well be back next season." Blue Jays Jerseys 2019 .

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas started the season with a stunner. The Longhorns unveiled their new offense, found their quarterback(s) and eased some of the pressure on coach Charlie Strong.They also leaped back into the Top 25 for the first time in three years following the overtime win against Notre Dame.The No. 11 Longhorns (1-0) want to keep that momentum going at home Saturday night against UTEP (1-0) when a stumble would be a disaster.One game does not make a season, said Strong, who is in a pivotal year after consecutive losing season. We know that were still rebuilding.But one game can sure give a team a boost. Freshman quarterback Shane Buechele and his senior backup Tyrone Swoopes delivered the biggest plays and answered the biggest question heading into this season. Buechele passed for two touchdowns and ran for another against Notre Dame and Swoopes ran for three touchdowns, including the winning score in overtime.The Miners will be trying to spoil all this fun, but it will take a pretty big punch up in class to do it. And UTEP will be starting backup quarterback Kavika Johnson. Regular starter Zach Greenlee strained a knee ligament in a 38-22 season-opening win over New Mexico State.Ill be honest, well probably have to play a perfect game for us to beat this team, UTEP coach Sean Kugler said. Theres not a single kid in our program that even probably got a recruiting letter from the University of Texas.Some things to look for when the Longhorns and Miners kick off Saturday night:DYNAMIC DUOThe Miners have quite a pair in twin brothers Aaron and Alvin Jonnes.dddddddddddd Aaron is the nations leading rusher with 249 yards in the first game against New Mexico State. It was an impressive return after missing most of 2015 with an injury. Alvin is a starting linebacker and had 12 tackles in the first game. He led the Miners with 93 tackles and 6 + sacks last season.TEXAS QUARTERBACKSBuechele and Swoopes got Texas fans excited about the potential of coordinator Sterlin Gilberts offense with their 1-2 punch of passing and running. Look for of the same with Buechele throwing deep and Swoopes running the 18-Wheeler package as a change of pace.Swoopes, a former starter, had been harshly criticized by Texas fans over the past two season. He said he wont get back on social media to see what people are saying about him now.I know just as fast everybody can lift me up, they can put you back down, Swoopes said.MINER ADJUSTMENTSAaron Jones is the catalyst in the offense but the loss of Greenlee could have a huge impact if limits the Miners ability to keep the Longhorns from packing the line of scrimmage. Johnson took a few snaps last week in a wildcat formation, rushing for 15 yards with one incomplete pass. He also caught two passes for 26 yards.TEXAS DEPTHThe Longhorns played 10 freshmen in their season and the number could go higher this week as Strong continues to try to build depth before the Big 12 portion of the schedule. Texas has 25 sophomores and freshmen on their two-deep depth chart. ' ' '
