PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Texas quarterback Colt McCoy hurt his passing shoulder on the Longhorns' first drive of the BCS championship game, ending his record-setting college career.
School officials never specified the seriousness of his injury but declared him out with Texas trailing 24-6 early in the third quarter.
McCoy hurt his right shoulder on his fifth snap of the game. He kept the ball on an option to his left and was hit square by lineman Marcell Dareus for no gain.
McCoy finishes his career with the most wins of any quarterback in NCAA history - 45. He also is among the top 10 in passing yards, passing touchdowns and total offense.
