AUSTIN, Texas -- Colt McCoy threw four touchdown passes, setting the Texas career record, and the No. 7 Longhorns romped to a 52-10 win over Rice on Saturday night.
McCoy finished with 329 yards passing and led the Longhorns
(3-0) in rushing for the second time this season with 83 yards on
eight carries. Jordan Shipley caught five passes for 155 yards and
touchdowns of 30 and 60 yards in the first half for Texas.
McCoy's 5-yard scoring toss to Quan Cosby in the third broke the
previous record of 60 set by Major Applewhite from 1998-2001.
Applewhite is now the Longhorns running backs coach.
A third-year starter as a junior, McCoy, who has 62 TD passes,
could very well set just about every passing record at Texas by the
time he's done.
