McCoy struggles, but Longhorns beat Sooners 16-13

Texas, still a second-half team, does enough to shake Sooners
Sunday, October 18, 2009

— Like nearly everything else on these grounds at the State Fair, things were twisting and turning upside down, careening out of control and racing at top speed. Finally, the ride came to a stop and everything settled down exactly where it started out before all the commotion.

But in the end, the results were pretty much the same as before:

Sam Bradford's still hurt, this time maybe for good.

Move over Alabama. Texas' defense will put a hurting on you.

The sloppy performance did little for McCoy's chances of winning the Heisman Trophy and it won't earn much respect for a team that slipped a spot in last week's poll. But what matters most to McCoy and the Longhorns (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) is remaining in line to play for the national championship — and, well, it always feels good to beat their rivals from across the Red River, especially in front of 96,009, the largest crowd in the 104-game history of this series
