Texas beats West Virginia 47-40 in overtime
TEXAS 47, WEST VIRGINIA 40

AP Sports Writer

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Case McCoy threw a 2-yard touchdown
pass in overtime and Texas linebacker Steve Edmond then
intercepted West Virginia's Paul Millard in the end zone on
fourth down to give the Longhorns a 47-40 win over the
Mountaineers on Saturday night.

Texas (7-2, 6-0 Big 12) maintained sole possession of first
place in the conference over No. 5 Baylor.

Charles Sims ran for 96 yards and three touchdowns for West
Virginia (4-6, 2-5). The Mountaineers must now win both of their
remaining games at Kansas and at home against Iowa State to
become bowl eligible.

It marked the second-straight shootout involving the teams. West
Virginia won last year 48-45 in Austin, Texas.

McCoy threw three TD passes after halftime, including the short
toss to fullback Alex De La Torre on the Longhorns' overtime
possession. It was the sophomore's first catch of the season.

Mario Alford then ran 20 yards on West Virginia's first play of
overtime, but Millard, playing in place of the injured Clint
Trickett, threw two straight incompletions before his soft pass
ended up in Edmond's hands.

McCoy finished 27 of 49 for a season-high 283 yards. His 10-yard
TD toss to Jackson Shipley put the Longhorns ahead 37-33 with
8:57 remaining in the game.

On third-and-7, Millard found Alford across the middle near
midfield and Alford went the rest of the way untouched with 7:39
left for the Mountaineers' longest TD pass of the season. It
also was Alford's first TD catch of the season.

The Longhorns sent the game into overtime tied at 40-40 on
Anthony Fera's fourth field goal of the game, a 24-yarder with
13 seconds left in regulation.

Millard completed 16 of 32 passes for 259 yards. But Millard and
Trickett were sacked six times and the Mountaineers had five
turnovers. Trickett was sacked and left the game with an
undisclosed injury late in the first quarter and didn't return.

West Virginia struggled to move the ball much of the game, but
the Mountaineers looked impressive on a 91-yard drive capped by
Sims' 1-yard run for a 26-16 lead midway through the third
quarter.

McCoy then found Mike Davis for a 49-yard TD pass, and the pair
combined on a 29-yard pass on Texas' next drive to help set up
Joe Bergeron's 8-yard scoring run to put the Longhorns ahead
30-26 entering the fourth quarter.

A facemask penalty on the ensuing kickoff gave West Virginia the
ball near midfield, and Dreamius Smith capped the short drive
with an 8-yard TD run.

Darwin Cook intercepted McCoy on Texas' next possession, but
West Virginia's K.J. Dillon was called for holding on the play
to keep the Longhorns' drive alive. On third down, McCoy found
Shipley on a 36-yard pass play and the pair later combined on
the 10-yard TD pass, also on third down, with 8:57 left.

After West Virginia retook the lead, Texas was forced to punt
but got the ball back again with 2:35 left at its 36. McCoy
found Shipley with a 9-yard pass on fourth down to the West
Virginia 38 with 52 seconds left. Malcolm Brown then ran 27
yards around right end to set up Fera's tying field goal.

Texas converted 9 of 14 times on third down after halftime after
going 1 of 9 in the first half.
