COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Colt McCoy might have just provided Heisman Trophy voters with a "moment" to remember him by.

McCoy streaked up the middle of the Texas A&M defense for a 65-yard touchdown run to boost Texas to a 14-7 lead.

On the play, he ran past A&M linebacker Michael Hodges and safety Jordan Pugh near the line of scrimmage. He then outran Terrence Frederick in the secondary en route to the end zone.

It was his longest career run and has helped him already pile up a career-high 111 yards on seven carries.

McCoy finished the first quarter by hitting his last six passes, finishing the quarter 10-for-13 for 73 yards and a touchdown. He's also turned into the Longhorns' primary rusher, utilizing the zone read as a primary running play.

McCoy's rushing total in the first quarter already is better than in any game this season. His previous best of 44 yards came against Wyoming.

The long touchdown run boosted him over 100 yards for the first time since the Florida Atlantic University game in the 2008 season opener.
