AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Colt McCoy popped the question in true Texas football style. The former Longhorns quarterback brought girlfriend Rachel Glandorf to Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Monday night. When they got to the field, "Will You Marry Me?" was on the stadium's giant high definition scoreboard screen. When she turned around, McCoy was on his knee to propose. She said yes. McCoy injured his right throwing shoulder in the Longhorns' 37-21 loss to Alabama in the national championship game last week.

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy was cleared yesterday to play in the Alamo Bowl. McCoy's status was in doubt after he severely pinched a nerve in his neck in the final minute of a 12-7 loss to Texas A & M on Nov. 24. The Longhorns will face Iowa on Dec. 30 in San Antonio. McCoy, a redshirt freshman, set a school record this season with 27 touchdown passes. He passed for 2,262 yards and threw seven interceptions this season. In another matter, Texas cornerback Aaron Ross was taken to a hospital after police found him disoriented outside of a restaurant and found minor damage to his car. He was later released.

Ed Barkowitz   1. Texas 2. Florida 3. Penn State 4. Oklahoma 5. Mississippi While it feels a bit like tugging on Superman's cape by not picking Florida, I'm going with Texas to redeem last year's snub. The Longhorns in Week 3 get Texas Tech and a chance to avenge last year's upset, which cost them the Big 12 title on a dumb tiebreaker and a shot at Florida in the BCS title game. Sure, Florida returns St. Tim Tebow and is the overwhelming choice of the Associated Press voters, but bear in mind that only 10 of the AP's preseason No. 1s since 1950 went on to win the championship.

Now that's a Texas two-step. A flawlessly executed one at that. A week after earning Texas' first regular-season No. 1 ranking since 1984 by knocking off Oklahoma, Colt McCoy and the Longhorns used a stunning blend of dominating offense and defense in the first half to crush No. 11 Missouri, 56-31, last night in Austin, Texas. The game was supposed to be a battle between two national-title contenders and Heisman-caliber quarterbacks in McCoy and Missouri's Chase Daniel. The Tigers had been within one victory of playing for the national title last season and were ranked as high as No. 3 just a week ago. It wasn't close.

The 2009 regular season is nearly over, just one game remains - today's Army-Navy clash at Lincoln Financial Field - and it's time to wrap things up with tonight's presentation of the Heisman Trophy. Yeah, we know there are a bunch of bowl contests and a BCS championship game remaining, but we tend to consider the BCS the way Penn State coach Joe Paterno did yesterday. "I think it's for the birds," he said. As for the Heisman, our ballot read: 1. Colt McCoy, Texas 2. Mark Ingram, Alabama 3. C.J. Spiller, Clemson.

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy said yesterday he didn't realize the football must hit something before the clock stops when he tossed away a pass at the end of the Longhorns' 13-12 victory against Nebraska - a gaffe that nearly left his team with no time to kick the game-winning field goal. McCoy said he thought the clocked stop on a pass out of bounds as soon as it crossed the first-down marker. Had he known the rule, he said, he wouldn't have floated a long and high pass over the bench area that didn't touch down until it appeared to hit a railing near the stands.

Colt McCoy returned to work with the Cleveland Browns on Monday not knowing how much longer he'll have a job. McCoy participated, as expected, in the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program just days after Cleveland drafted his likely successor, Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden. The Browns selected Weeden, a former minor-league pitcher in the New York Yankees' system, in the first round on Thursday and the team is expected to start the 28-year-old this season as a rookie.

The 2009 college football season is sure to be the Year of the Quarterback. That's not to say all the quarterbacks mentioned below will move on to the NFL to rival the draft class of 1983 (Dan Marino, John Elway, Jim Kelly) or 2004 (Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning and three combined Super Bowl wins), but they have a chance to make a serious impact now and in the future.

Northeastern University in Boston is ending its football program after 74 seasons because the investment required to make it competitive was too high.

Jack Pardee, 76, one of Bear Bryant's "Junction Boys" at Texas A&M who became an all-pro linebacker and an NFL coach, died Monday of gall-bladder cancer, University of Houston spokesman David Bassity said. Pardee was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1986. He played three seasons at Texas A&M and was the 14th overall pick in the 1957 NFL draft by Los Angeles. He played for the Rams from 1957-64, sat out a year to deal with melanoma, and played seven more seasons.

Browns president Mike Holmgren said quarterback Colt McCoy was not checked for a concussion on the sideline following a hit by Pittsburgh's James Harrison last Thursday because McCoy didn't exhibit signs of having a head injury. McCoy was laid out on a vicious helmet-to-face mask hit. Harrison was been suspended for one game without pay. Holmgren said the Browns' medical and training staff did not see the hit and did not realize the impact because they were treating other injured players at the time.

BEREA, Ohio - Colt McCoy's father heavily criticized the Cleveland Browns on Friday for allowing the quarterback to return to Thursday night's loss to Pittsburgh after a vicious hit that left him with a post-game concussion. "He never should've gone back in the game," Brad McCoy told The Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He was basically out [cold] after the hit. You could tell by the rigidity of his body as he was laying there. There were a lot of easy symptoms that should've told them he had a concussion.

Louisiana State and Oklahoma State took control of the race to the BCS championship game - but don't count out Alabama yet. The day after the Tigers and Cowboys stayed unbeaten with their most difficult victories of the season, they also took the top two spots in the BCS standings. First-place LSU beat Alabama, 9-6, in overtime Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, Ala., right about the time second-place Oklahoma State held off Kansas State, 52-45, for a wild win in Stillwater, Okla.

Colt McCoy, a guy a lot of football insiders questioned when he came out of Texas a year ago, looked poised and comfortable running Cleveland's new West Coast offense in the preseason opener on Saturday night. Turns out that McCoy had gone to Hattiesburg, Miss., during the lockout to get tips on the West Coast offense from none other than Brett Favre. (Tell me Browns president Mike Holmgren didn't have something to do with that!) During the one-day break in the lockout in April, McCoy scooted into Browns headquarters to get new coach Pat Shurmur's playbook.

Think kicking in the NFL is easy? NFL viewers saw something on Sunday they hadn't witnessed in more than 30 years: football players finding out that being a kicker is a difficult trick. For example, Detroit's Ndamukong Suh isn't just the likely rookie defender of the year. He's the league's biggest placekicker, too. The 307-pound defensive tackle bounced an extra-point attempt off the right upright in the third quarter against the New York Jets on Sunday after Detroit's longtime kicker Jason Hanson hurt his right knee.
