The University of Texas Longhorn Band may have been in the land of jazz during the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Monday, but their half-time show included a bit of South Texas.

College football fans got to do the washing machine during UT's half-time show, which included Selena's "Como La Flor." The performance included a musical arrangement of the Tejano song along with the band members forming on the field to spell out Selena's iconic signature. You can watch the clip here.
