Texas Stumbles Past Arkansas State

(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.
