LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) Colt McCoy threw a three-yard touchdown pass to Dan Buckner in the fourth quarter and #2 Texas got a measure of revenge against Texas Tech with a 34-24 win Saturday night.
McCoy's three-yard touchdown to Buckner with nine minutes left put Texas ahead 31-17 and shook off an otherwise shaky outing for last season's runner-up for the Heisman trophy. McCoy finished with 205-yards and two interceptions on 24 of 34 passing for the Longhorns (3-0, 1-0 Big 12).
Taylor Potts passed for 420-yards and made three touchdowns for Texas Tech (2-1, 0-1), but fumbled on sack by Sergio Kindle to set up McCoy's touchdown pass. Texas Tech beat the Longhorns 39-33 last season, a loss that cost the Longhorns a shot at the national title.
