Texas Longhorns quarterback Case McCoy got the start in the Red River Rivalry game against the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday. The Longhorns and McCoy are trying to end a three-game losing streak. The last time Texas beat Oklahoma Case’s brother Colt McCoy was the quarterback.

The game got off to a great start they marched down the field and scored first with a field goal. Oklahoma marched down the field and got a field goal as well.

On the next drive things got rough for Colt McCoy. He dropped back for a pass and was up-ended by a pair of Oklahoma defenders. The hit was pretty violent looking but it looked like Case McCoy was alright. He got up and kept playing, despite having a chunk of turf stuck in the face mask of his helmet.

The player who hit McCoy was Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker and he was called a personal foul for the play.

That drive ended with a fumble. On the next drive Oklahoma gave the ball right back to the Longhorns. Sooners quarterback Blake Bell threw an interception to a defensive lineman that was returned for a touchdown.

This game already looks like it is going to be a good one.

    You need to look over your article again. You referred to Case as Colt in the third paragraph, which I’m sure was not intentional.
