His passing statistics and running statistics separately aren't the best in Texas history after five games. But I don't think it can be argued by anybody that Colt McCoy is off to the best statistical start when all statistical measures are collectively factored for any quarterback in school history.

To prove that point, compare McCoy's stats from five games with the other four leading statistical seasons in school history.

Here's McCoy's early numbers, compared to the other single-season statistical leaders in school passing history:
