Texas Longhorns Football 2006 Game 11 Highlights - Kansas State

Colt McCoy came into this game with momentum from come-from-behind-wins and widespread Heisman hype. But when he left the game all that was left was a neck injury.
At the end of the first Texas drive, McCoy left the game with a neck stinger and weakness in his throwing arm.

Back-up quarterback Jevan Snead took over but struggled with consistency in what became a high-scoring shootout. After falling behind 21-42 in the third quarter, Snead found a groove and brought the team to within a field goal of victory. But wouldn't you know it, of all people, KSU's Jordy Nelson sealed the upset with his clutch play at the end of the game.

Longhorn nation was understandably upset. Just ask Doug Flutie. He made the mistake of saying that the Longhorns could only lose if McCoy got hurt.
After the game, he received threats by email for jinxing the Longhorns and their chance at a national title.

Texas - 42
Kansas State - 45
