AMES, Iowa —
Gray had 89 yards rushing, including a 45-yard touchdown dash, for the Longhorns
McCoy started for the second time this season in place of the injured David Ash, who was out with concussion-like symptoms, and helped put Texas take a 10-0 lead before Iowa State rallied for 13 straight points.
McCoy got the Longhorns the lead back with a desperation heave. He flung the ball almost blindly into the end zone — and found Harris between three defenders to put the Longhorns up 17-13.
McCoy was far from perfect. But on a night when the Longhorns and Mack Brown desperately needed a win, McCoy did just enough to help give them one.
