If you weren't convinced the success of the University of Texas this season is due to our man wearing No. 12, then the 35-7 victory on the frigid road over Kansas should make you a believer.
He was 24-of-34 for 255 yards and 2 TDs, while rushing for another 80 or so and another touchdown.
Not that the offensive and defensive lines didn't have something to do with the "W" as well. But leadership is what won that game.
The four-touchdown margin of victory should be good enough for the 'Horns to keep their No. 3 BCS ranking, and that nice 11-day rest before hosting the Turkeys for their final regular season game should be just what the doctor ordered.
SECOND HALF (First Drive)
That's more like it for our man Colt! Take the ball on your own 39, go 10 plays, throwing for three completions and running it yourself three times.
A Superman impression by Jordan Shipley on a fake field goal didn't hurt either.
21-0, Burnt Orange!
Man, talk about book-end drives for the first half against Kansas.
Colt McCoy looked unstoppable on the opening drive against the Jayhawks, leading the Longhorns to paydirt on 10 plays.
Then a fumble, a sack, an incompletion and turnover-on-downs ended the next four drives for UT.
But ... the last drive of the half (not counting the final 14 seconds), Colt took it in himself on a 4-yard run to cap an 8-play drive. He finished the first half 14-of-19 for 122 yards, and rushed for about 20 yards.
The game should be more than 14-0, but Colt appears to be adapting to the cold, and he gets the ball back first after intermission, so everything should return to normal.
I enjoyed seeing Colt and buddy Jordan Shipley discussing strategy right before half. Expect those two to connect a bunch more in the second half, hopefully for a TD or two.
