OK, I wanted to see the real numbers for come-from-behind victories in the fourth quarter for Texas during Colt McCoy's career.
Seems that out of the 23 games that Colt has played in (winning 18, losing 5 for a 78.2% winning percentage), the Longhorns have been behind going into the 4th quarter on 9 occassions - four last year and five this year.
The Longhorns are 5-4 in those games, losing to Kansas State twice, Ohio State and Oklahoma. The other loss on Colt's record is last year's Aggie game. Texas was ahead, 7-6, going into the final quarter but lost 12-7.
Saturday's C-F-B win over the Cowboys was the biggest deficit (21 points at 35-14) made up by UT.
Just FYI: Last season's Alamo Bowl was the "squeakiest" of the C-F-Bs. Texas was down by one (21-20) going into the fourth quarter and only won by a nose - or two points (26-24).
