QB McCoy cleared to play against Texas A&M
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas coach Mack Brown has cleared freshman quarterback Colt McCoy to play Friday against Texas A-and-M. A stinger knocked McCoy out of the eleventh-ranked Longhorns' loss at Kansas State.
He hurt his neck and shoulder on a touchdown-scoring quarterback plunge in the first quarter of the 45-to-42 loss. So far, he has a school-record 27 touchdown passes for the Longhorns, who are nine-and-two overall and six-and-one in Big 12 play.
They must win Friday to nail down a berth in the Big 12 championship game.
