McCoy fought flu with PB&J sandwiches
Texas’ Colt McCoy had the flu last week and says he didn’t start feeling better until the second half of the Longhorns’ win over Texas Tech.

McCoy missed a day of practice last week and stayed out of most drills all week. Although his symptoms were gone by game time, McCoy said Monday he still felt out of sorts at kickoff.

The solution? Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at halftime, along with Pedialyte, a hydration drink for children.

McCoy says it helped — and he was 15-of-18 passing with a TD in the second half of the 34-24 win.
