Longhorns Scrimmage & Fan Appreciation Day Video

Texas fans woke up extra early for the Longhorns' fan appreciation day and public scrimmage. Colt McCoy looked like the starting quarterback with two TDs in his two drives. He went 5 for 6 for 68 yards with a nice 44-yard pass to Limas Sweed. Jamaal Charles and Selvin Young each rushed for a TD and both backs looked sharp.
The offense looked good, but the defense looked downright fierce. CB Erick Jackson had the hit of the day when he leveled Billy Pittman while Pittman bobbling a quick pass. Jackson hit him so hard his own helmet flew up the field. Pittman still made the catch. And freshman safety Robert Joseph had a highlight-reel interception on a nice pass by Jevan Snead to Billy Pittman.

All of those plays are included in this collection from the day's news coverage which also includes a charming live interview with Kerry Campbell, father of Texas linebacker Jeremy Campbell.
