Huskers know defending McCoy isn't easy

December, 5, 2009
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Colt McCoy gets one final chance to impress Heisman Trophy voters tonight. It's something Nebraska players and coaches have heard about all week. And they know defending McCoy and the Texas offense won't be easy.

Huskers coach Bo Pelini was asked about the challenge of stopping McCoy at a news conference at Cowboys Stadium on Friday.

"Colt's a tremendous football player," Pelini said. "He's as multi-talented a guy that you'll face. He can run and throw and do it with the best of them. Obviously, he has great character and leadership ability. You watch him on film and he's smart, he knows where to go with the football. He's very decisive.

"It's going to be a heck of a challenge for us. Our defense is looking forward to that challenge."
