Texas looks lost without McCoy
By David Ubben
PASADENA, Calif. -- Texas has lost the lead and likely their quarterback for the rest of the game.
Colt McCoy's injury has left the Texas offense struggling. And Mark Ingram's 2-yard TD run gave Alabama the lead on the second play of the second quarter.
McCoy's injury has shell shocked the Longhorns offense, who produced only Hunter Lawrence field goals despite moving to the Alabama 1 on the first drive and the Crimson Tide 25 on the second possession.
ESPN radio reports that McCoy is in the locker room without his pads after he was treated for the injury. His roommate and close friend Jordan Shipley has gone to the locker room to console him.
Alabama took advantage of the good field position and moved the ball consistently on the play. It looks like they have Texas on its heels.
