McCoy directs Longhorns to tying score

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- It’s been fashionable to say that Colt McCoy needs a monster game tonight in order to prove his Heisman Trophy legitimacy.

His last drive was a pretty good encapsulation of what he means to the Longhorns, utilizing the hurry-up offense to help tie the score

McCoy completed his last four passes, including a 14-yard TD strike to Jordan Shipley to tie the game at 7-7 after the conversion.

Earlier, McCoy extricated the Longhorns from a third-and-10 hole with a key scramble that produced 9 yards. His sneak on fourth down gave Texas the first down, keeping the drive alive.

Seven plays later, McCoy and Shipley hooked up for the 29th time of Shipley’s 30 touchdowns.

The Kyle Field isn't nearly as loud now as it was after A&M's first touchdown.
