Longhorns top TCU, 34-13
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Colt McCoy passed for a touchdown, set up another with a long run, and a dominant performance by No. 7 Texas' defense carried the Longhorns to a 34-13 win over No. 19 TCU Saturday night.
McCoy, who threw two first-half interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown, cut a 10-0 TCU lead in the third quarter with a 33-yard strike to Nate Jones. His 23-yard scramble early in the fourth set up the go-ahead score before the Longhorns started piling it on.
The Texas defense did the rest. Brandon Foster returned a fumble by TCU punter Derek Walsh for a TD and the Longhorns (2-0) held the Horned Frogs (1-1) to 251 totals yards. TCU had just 17 yards and no first downs in the third quarter when Texas started surging.
Jones had eight catches for catches for 91 yards and Jamaal Charles tacked on a 39-yard touchdown run in the fourth for the Longhorns with just under three minutes left. McCoy finished 25-of-38 passing for 239 yards. Charles finished with 134 yards, most of it coming in the second half.
