Case McCoy scored on a one-yard plunge with :51 left as Texas rallied to edge Iowa State 31-30 Thursday night in Ames.
McCoy threw for 244 yards for the Longhorns, (3-2, 2-0), who will head into next week's game against Oklahoma with at least a share of first place in the Big 12. McCoy led Texas on the winning 75-yard drive in just under three minutes. It was aided by two pass-interference penalties and two near fumbles at the one by Johnathan Gray.
Sam Richardson had 262 yards passing and Aaron Wimberly had 117 yards rushing and a touchdown for Iowa State (1-3, 0-1). The Cyclones dropped their 11th straight Big 12 opener.
