McCoy's 3 TD passes lead No. 2 Texas in rout, 64-7

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Colt McCoy and No. 2 Texas got the fast start they had been missing in recent weeks, rolling to a 40-point lead by halftime before cruising to a 64-7 win Saturday over Texas-El Paso.

McCoy passed for 286 yards and three touchdowns, two to Dan Buckner. The Longhorns (4-0) also harassed UTEP quarterback Trevor Vittatoe into five turnovers.

Freshman D.J. Monroe's first-quarter 91-yard kickoff return made him the first player in Texas history to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in a career. He also had one in Texas' opener.

This one came seconds after UTEP's Melvin Stephenson II returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown.

McCoy was sharp after the interception with TD passes of 36 and 15 yards to Buckner and 16 yards to Jordan Shipley, as Texas built a 47-7 halftime lead.
