AUSTIN, Texas - Colt McCoy and the No. 5 Texas Longhorns
got over the red-and-black blues.
McCoy passed for 300 yards and five touchdowns, Ryan Palmer
returned an interception 22 yards for a tiebreaking score and the
Longhorns beat Baylor 45-21 Saturday for a much-needed rebound
victory a week after their last-second loss at Texas Tech.
Texas (9-1, 5-1 Big 12) scored on its first two drives before
Baylor (3-7, 1-5) tied it by scoring twice in 4 minutes. The
Longhorns went ahead to stay when Palmer picked off a deflected
pass, pulling it off his shoulder pads, then spinning and running
to the end zone.
The loss to the Red Raiders knocked Texas out of the No. 1 spots
in the AP poll and the Bowl Championship Series standings (to
fourth this week). The Longhorns also dropped out of first place in
the Big 12 South.
