AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Whew! Top-ranked Texas was put to its
toughest test yet and came through unbeaten.
Looking more vulnerable than any other time this season, the
Longhorns needed a big defensive stand in the fourth quarter to
overcome a pair of late mistakes by Colt McCoy and hang on for a
tough 28-24 win over No. 7 Oklahoma State.
Their reward is another week at No. 1 and yet another huge Big
12 South division game next weekend at No. 8 Texas Tech.
McCoy, who passed for 391 yards and two touchdowns, threw a rare
interception that set up a field goal as Oklahoma State pulled
within 28-24, then fumbled on the Cowboys' 10 with just over five
minutes left when Texas could have put the game away.
