McCoy, Longhorns dismantle Aggies
AUSTIN, Texas - All Texas and Colt McCoy can do now is wait.
McCoy passed for two touchdowns, ran for two more, and No. 4 Texas snapped a two-game losing streak to rival Texas A&M with a 49-9 victory last night, a performance that may (or may not) have been impressive enough to boost McCoy's chances for the Heisman Trophy and his team's position in the Bowl Championship Series.
The 40-point win was the largest in the rivalry since a 48-0 Texas victory in 1898.
McCoy was 23 of 28 passing for 311 yards and he added 49 yards rushing for Texas (11-1, 7-1 Big 12) to earn his first win over the Aggies (4-8, 2-6) in three tries. He also got career victory No. 31, passing Vince Young to set a Texas record for starting quarterbacks.
Cody Johnson ran for 102 yards and two scores for the Longhorns.
McCoy's TD passes of 20 yards to Brandon Collins and Quan Cosby made it 21-3 at halftime. The strike to Cosby came three plays after McCoy was staggered by a hard hit.
