McCoy, Healthy and Looking Toward Heisman Possibilities

    Texas quarterback Colt McCoy has a key factor going for him in the chase for the Heisman Trophy: He's injury-free through four games.

    Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, last season's Heisman winner, hasn't played since injuring his shoulder in the first game.

    Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, the 2007 trophy winner, spent Saturday night in a hospital after a third-quarter concussion in the top-ranked Gators' win over Kentucky.

    Other contenders such as California tailback Jahvid Best have been knocked down by a poor game. He had just 55 yards in a 42-3 loss to Oregon.

    The worst thing to hit McCoy so far -- has been the flu.

    McCoy was at full strength in Saturday's 64-7 win over Texas-El Paso, passing for 286 yards and three first-half TDs for the unbeaten No. 2 Longhorns.

    UT's next game is Oct. 10 against Colorado.
