PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Texas quarterback Colt McCoy has been injured on the Longhorns’ first drive of the BCS championship game and was taken to the locker room for further examination.
Team officials did not immediately have any details, but trainers appeared to be examining his right arm, which is his passing arm.
McCoy kept the ball on an option to his left and was tackled for no gain. He got up and appeared to be OK, but then went to the sideline and backup Garrett Gilbert ran in and called timeout.
Throughout the break, McCoy was being examined on the ground. Several minutes later he went to the bench and consulted with trainers.
The drive ended with a Texas field goal for a 3-0 lead.
