Texas benches Gilbert for Case McCoy

By David Ubben

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas waited through all of last season and more than a quarter of today's ugly start. Case McCoy will finally get his shot.

Garrett Gilbert was benched with Texas trailing 13-0 midway through the second quarter.

Gilbert started Saturday's game just 2-of-8 for eight yards with two interceptions. He's traded his helmet for a headset for now.

McCoy starred on this field during the spring game, but has very little experience. We'll see what he has to offer. He entered the field to cheers and an ovation.
