AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Colt McCoy threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Dan Buckner in the fourth quarter and No. 2 Texas got a measure of revenge against Texas Tech with a 34-24 win Saturday night.
McCoy's 3-yard TD to Buckner with nine minutes left put Texas ahead 31-17 and shook off an otherwise shaky outing for last season's runner-up for the Heisman Trophy.
McCoy finished with 205 yards and two interceptions on 24-of-34 passing for the Longhorns (3-0, 1-0 Big 12).
Taylor Potts passed for 420 yards and three touchdowns for Texas Tech (2-1, 0-1), but fumbled on a sack by Sergio Kindle to set up McCoy's TD pass.
Texas Tech beat the Longhorns 39-33 last season, a loss that cost the Longhorns a shot at the national title.
