LAWRENCE, Kan. (October 27, 2012) -- Case McCoy hit D.J. Grant with a 1-yard touchdown pass with 12 seconds to play, capping a 70-yard drive in the final 2 minutes and lifting Texas past Kansas 21-17 on Saturday.
With 2:28 left and the Jayhawks (1-7, 0-5 Big 12) straining to end a 16-game Big 12 losing streak, Nick Prolago kicked a 29-yard field goal for a 17-14 lead over a Longhorns squad that came in as three-touchdown favorites.
But McCoy, who replaced an ineffective David Ash in the fourth quarter, quickly had the Longhorns (6-2, 3-2) soaring down the field.
He hit Jaxon Shipley for 18 yards on fourth down, then connected with Mike Davis streaking down the sideline for 39 yards to the Kansas 3.
On third-and-goal from the 1 and with Kansas crowding the line of scrimmage, Grant sneaked into the end zone and cradled McCoy's softly tossed pass for the winning TD.
