PASADENA, Calif. -- Colt McCoy was sidelined barely four minutes into action with what appears to be a shoulder injury.
McCoy was sandwiched into center Chris Hall when he was crushed by Alabama defensive end Marcell Darius.
The play knocked McCoy out for the rest of the drive.
It was capped by an 18-yard field goal by Hunter Lawrence that gave Texas a 3-0 lead.
The Longhorns take an early lead, but may have suffered a greater loss without McCoy. It's hard to believe the Longhorns can win without their leader.
