MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Mack Brown has been through a lot in 16 seasons as head coach at Texas – but never overtime.Case McCoy threw a 2-yard touchdown pass in overtime and Texas linebacker Steve Edmond then intercepted West Virginia’s Paul Millard in the end zone on fourth down to give the Longhorns a 47-40 win over the Mountaineers on Saturday night. Texas (7-2, 6-0 Big 12) maintained sole possession of first place in the conference, just ahead of No. 5 Baylor. “I don’t know what other people’s nerves were. Mine were fine,” McCoy said. “To be undefeated in conference is right where we want to be. This team is building confidence in each other.” Charles Sims ran for 96 yards and three touchdowns for West Virginia (4-6, 2-5). The Mountaineers must now win both of their remaining games at Kansas and at home against Iowa State to become bowl eligible. It marked the second-straight shootout involving the teams. West Virginia won last year 48-45 in Austin, Texas. It was only the second overtime game in Texas’ storied history, and the first under Brown. “We were very fortunate and came up big,” Brown said. “I’ve never been in an overtime fight like this. It was special. This was big time. It was great.” West Virginia went to overtime for the second straight game, beating TCU 30-27 last week. But the Mountaineers couldn’t hold onto a 10-point lead in the second half this time. “We just weren’t able to make the plays when it counts, which is tough to take,” said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. McCoy finished 27 of 49 for a season-high 283 yards. He threw three TD passes after halftime, including the short toss to fullback Alex De La Torre on the Longhorns’ overtime possession. It was the sophomore’s first catch of the season. “In situations like that were you get the ball first, you want to put pressure on them, but you still want to be smart,” McCoy said. “We knew our defense would stand up and make a stop in the end zone like they did.” Mario Alford ran 20 yards on West Virginia’s first play of overtime, but Millard, playing in place of the injured Clint Trickett, threw two straight incompletions before his soft pass ended up in Edmond’s hands. McCoy’s 10-yard TD toss to Jackson Shipley put the Longhorns ahead 37-33 with 8:57 remaining in the game. On third-and-7, Millard threw to Alford across the middle near midfield and Alford went the rest of the way untouched for a 72-yard TD with 7:39 left for the Mountaineers’ longest scoring pass play of the season. It also was Alford’s first TD catch of the season. The Longhorns sent the game into overtime tied at 40-40 on Anthony Fera’s fourth field goal of the game, a 24-yarder with 13 seconds left in regulation. Millard completed 16 of 32 passes for 259 yards. But Millard and Trickett were sacked six times and the Mountaineers had five turnovers. Trickett was sacked and left the game with an undisclosed injury late in the first quarter and didn’t return. “We just knew we had to get pressure on those guys and disrupt them,” said Texas defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat. “That’s what we love to do as a defense.” West Virginia struggled to move the ball much of the game, but the Mountaineers looked impressive on a 91-yard drive capped by Sims’ 1-yard run for a 26-16 lead midway through the third quarter. McCoy then found Mike Davis for a 49-yard TD pass, and the pair combined on a 29-yard pass on Texas’ next drive to help set up Joe Bergeron’s 8-yard scoring run to put the Longhorns ahead 30-26 entering the fourth quarter. A facemask penalty on the ensuing kickoff gave West Virginia the ball near midfield, and Dreamius Smith capped the short drive with an 8-yard TD run. Darwin Cook intercepted McCoy on Texas’ next possession, but West Virginia’s K.J. Dillon was called for holding on the play to keep the Longhorns’ drive alive. On third down, McCoy found Shipley on a 36-yard pass play and the pair later combined on the 10-yard TD pass, also on third down, with 8:57 left. After West Virginia retook the lead, Texas was forced to punt but got the ball back again with 2:35 left at its 36. McCoy found Shipley with a 9-yard pass on fourth down to the West Virginia 38 with 52 seconds left. Malcolm Brown then ran 27 yards around right end to set up Fera’s tying field goal. Texas converted 9 of 14 times on third down after halftime after going 1 of 9 in the first half.
