Colt McCoy of Texas has won more college football games than any other quarterback in the history of the sport. That’s 140 years, for those keeping score at home. He has completed a higher percentage of passes in one season (76.7, in 2008) than any other quarterback in the history of the sport.
McCoy has led the No. 3 Longhorns to an 11-0 record and the Big 12 South championship. He is 3-0 as a bowl starter. He is 3-1 against Oklahoma. There’s one opponent in his four seasons that has given McCoy constant trouble, has pestered him like a zone blitz he can’t quite decipher.
That opponent is 6-foot-3, 214 pounds, hails from Tuscola, Texas, and greets McCoy in the mirror every morning.
