Horns Survive Arkansas State

By  | 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Colt McCoy threw two first-quarter
touchdown passes and fourth-ranked Texas stumbled through a sloppy
21-13 season-opening win over Arkansas State.
Texas did have this one wrapped up until Brandon Foster
recovered an onside kick with less than a minute to play. That came
after the Indians were forced to re-kick because of a penalty that
negated an onsider they recovered.
Texas hopes to contend for the Big 12 and national titles, but
will first have to shore up a defense that allowed Arkansas State
to grind out long drives and break off big plays.
