Redskins' McCoy feels right at home against Cowboys' defense

ARLINGTON, Texas - The one thing the heavily-favored Cowboys couldn't afford to do against Washington was allow Colt McCoy, the former Texas Longhorns great, to have a Hollywood-style homecoming on Monday Night Football. Yet that's exactly what they did. Washington's 20-17 win over the Cowboys had everything you'd expect in a blockbuster movie or prime-time drama. The lowly third...

The Bears are the defending Big 12 champs, are ranked No. 7 and have won three of the last four against Texas (2-2) in games Baylor (4-0) easily controlled...

Kansas aims to end 76-year drought against Texas

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- It's been more than seven decades since Kansas last beat Texas. Lots of things have changed dramatically during that time -- even the game of football. Three yards and a cloud of dust? More like spread 'em out and throw it all over. One thing that hasn't changed has been the Longhorns' dominance in that matchup. Kansas won the first meeting between the two in 1901...

Auburn Keeps Getting Lucky… And Continues To Prove Itself

Want to get a college football fan base riled up? Tell that fan base its team is LUCKY. It feels like such an insult, such a putdown, such a diminishment of what a bunch of young men and a coaching staff have just accomplished. It’s understandable — we’ve all been there as sports fans. When a fan becomes a writer, though, the perspective changes. Being lucky doesn’t become...

Couch: Brown deserved a better ending to his Longhorns tenure

It shouldn't have ended this way for Mack Brown. It's wrong. He did too much, earned too much, built too much. He put the pieces back together at Texas with his civility, and then built the Longhorns into a national power again. It was so amazing that Texas became the centerpiece for the realignment of the nation's conferences. Texas got its own TV network, the Longhorn Network...

Mack Brown's final outing doesn't go as planned

Blame backdoor politics. Maybe you'd like to believe the 16-year itch explains it. Monday night's Alamo Bowl was Mack Brown's final game as Texas' coach, and for 60 minutes, the reason why was only slightly less conspicuous than the bright green numbers and wings on Oregon's uniforms.
