McCoy leads Horns past Aggies in shootout

Colt McCoy threw four touchdown passes and No. 3 Texas overcame a huge game by Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson to wrap up an undefeated regular season with a 49-39 win over the Aggies on Thursday night.
The Longhorns (12-0, 8-0 Big 12) have only next week's
conference championship game against Nebraska standing between them
and the BCS title game.
For a while, though, it seemed as though Johnson would rally the
Aggies (6-6, 3-5) to a gigantic upset, shattering McCoy's Heisman
Trophy hopes and opening the door for TCU and Cincinnati to vault
into the national championship picture.
Jeff Fuller caught three touchdown passes from Johnson, the last
with 7:10 left to cut Texas' lead to 42-39. But Marquise Goodwin
returned the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown, and the
Longhorns could finally breathe easy after A&M's Randy Bullock
missed a 23-yard field goal try with 3:05 remaining.

    Me: Please leave Obama out of this. Some believe that he stands a very good chance of winning the Heisman Trophy this year, which he intends to place next to his Nobel Peace Prize.

    Wht be such a hater, dude. You must be a zero u fan and if you are, you're right. The Longhorn's victory over OU was meaningless, considering their (OU) lackluster season.

    Again, McCoy leads the longhorns in a minimal victory against a much weaker A&M team. Who does Texas play this year that matters? I still dont think texas deserves to be ranked that high after being in danger in every game except the baylor game! The Media has decided who they want in the NC and its Texas no matter what...obama must be a texas fan because he won with the help of the media also!! LMAO
