Football is back and in a big way if you are a fan of the Texas Longhorns. They defeated the Rice Owls 52-10 Saturday night under perfect skies. Colt McCoy had a record-setting day for a Longhorn surpasing Major Applewhite in career touchdwon passes with 62, throwing for four this day while passing for 329 yards and rushing for 83 more.

Under the direction of strength coach MadDog Madden the Horns take the field.

Senior receiver Jordan Shipley from nearby Burnet, TX. hauled in two TD passes and 155 yards of offense despite getting his head nearly yanked off by Rice’s Andrew Sendejo. 

UT student group the Texas Hellraisers toss one of their own into the air for every point scored by the Horns, and after every score that is a lot of tossing.
