Colt will have the same opportunity that Young did four years ago -- knock off the Heisman winner for the national championship. No. 2 Texas faces No. 1 Alabama on Jan. 7 at the Rose Bowl in the BCS national title game.
"I answered [Davis' text message] the way I felt. I mean, I think last year was a lot more disappointing than this year because I know how much more we have to play for," McCoy said. "The only disappointing thing was I was disappointed for my teammates that I couldn't bring it home for them."
