Colt McCoy able to return for the college football playoffs

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy will be back under center for Texas' next game in the college football playoffs, head coach Mack Brown reported today. "Luckily, he only went down in a first round game, so we were able to beat a still overmatched opponent and advance," he said. "But we'll need him at 100-percent now. This is when the college football playoffs get really exciting. And that's why the college football playoffs are the most exciting event we have in sports." With a healthy McCoy, Texas is now a heavy title favorite because top seed Alabama looked very weak in its opening game. "I'd have to admit," said Alabama head coach Nick Saban. "If Texas has a healthy McCoy, they'd beat us fairly soundly right now."
