McCoy sees Oklahoma game a chance to create legacy

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas quarterback Case McCoy has spent four years with the Longhorns living in his older brother Colt's considerable shadow.

While Colt led Texas to two BCS bowl games, a Big 12 title and was one win shy of a national championship, Case has been spent his career as part-time starter, most-of-the-time backup.

But McCoy will start for Texas (3-2, 2-0 Big 12) against No. 12 Oklahoma (5-0, 2-0) Saturday because David Ash is still sidelined with a concussion. It will be up to McCoy to try to end a three-game losing skid to the Sooners and add a little depth to the McCoy family legacy.

The Texas-Oklahoma game tends to make heroes and goats out of Longhorns quarterbacks, and McCoy said Monday he's embracing his chance for fame or infamy.
