AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Colt McCoy passed for 177 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as No. 3 Texas trounced North Texas, 56-7, beginning its defense of the national title.
McCoy's first scoring pass was for 60 yards to Limas Sweed with the game barely one minute old.
Sweed had five catches for 111 yards and scored his second touchdown on a 29-yard pass from McCoy in the third quarter.
The contest was barely a warm-up for the Longhorns, who play top-ranked Ohio State in Austin next Saturday.
