Colt McCoy and Rice junior quarterback Chase Clement are both on the official Davey O'Brien Award watch list, but that's about where their similarities end.
Sure, both had similar success in high school, Colt leading his Jim Ned High School Indians of Class 2A deep into the playoffs, while Clement led his Class 4A Alamo Heights Mules to the state semifinals.
I guess the biggest "similarity" is they both have 5 picks so far this season, but the biggest difference (and this is a biggie) is the two athletics programs for which they play.
Here's the "tale of the tape" for the two field generals after three games:
