Serena Fitchard of the James Street Group said Street died early Monday but that no other details were immediately available.
Street started the 1968 season as a backup but was made the starter after two games. He led Texas to 20 consecutive victories, including the "Game of the Century" with Arkansas in 1969, a come-from-behind, 15-14 victory by the top-ranked Longhorns over No. 2 Arkansas to cap the regular season.
The Texas-Arkansas game was attended by President Richard Nixon. After the Longhorns' victory, Nixon declared Texas the national champions.
Street later went on to a career in finance and structured settlements.
