1:59 p.m. (13:02 - 4th Q) - Colt McCoy picked up his fourth 300-yard passing game of the season and the eighth of his career. Both marks are one shy of the respective records held by Major Applewhite who had five 300-yard games in 1999 and nine for his career.

The 11 is one shy of the single-season school record of 12 held by Limas Sweed (2006) and Roy Williams (2002) and the 20 for the career puts him in a tie with Sweed for second place on UT's all-time list, trailing only Roy Williams (36).
