Texas vs. Kansas State score update: Longhorns leading 10-7 at the half

The No. 18 Texas Longhorns lead No. 6 Kansas State, 10-7, at halftime as the Wildcats attempt to earn the Big 12 Championship with a victory on Saturday night.

Case McCoy got the start at quarterback over David Ash and opened the game in shaky fashion, tossing an interception deep inside Longhorn territory on the second drive of the game for Texas. Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein scored on a 1-yard run on the very next play, giving the Wildcats a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Longhorns recovered, taking the next drive 60 yards before Nick Jordan's 37-yard field after Klein was intercepted at the tail end of a long drive. McCoy and Texas took the lead midway through the second quarter when he connected with Jaxon Shipley for a 14-yard touchdown pass, as the Texas quarterback nearly set a school record with consecutive pass completions following his interception.

A fake field goal by Texas failed in the final seconds of the half.

McCoy is 17-of-20 for 204 yards, one touchdown and one interception as the Longhorn passing game took over the second quarter. Klein, under consideration for the Heisman, is just 4-of-10 for 72 yards and an interception in the half.
