MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- 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 over No. 5 Baylor.

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.

McCoy threw three TD passes after halftime, including the short toss to fullback Alex De La Torre on the Longhorns' overtime possession.

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.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Rakeem Cato had four total touchdowns and Marshall had 657 total yards on Saturday in a 56-14 rout of UAB.

The Thundering Herd (6-3, 4-1 Conference-USA) scored quickly and easily. They averaged 12.6 yards per play to break a school record set in 1991 against VMI (12.4).

Cato surpassed Chad Pennington to become Marshall's all-time leader in consecutive games with a TD pass at 27. Cato had 276 yards, three passing touchdowns and no interceptions. His 20 pass attempts were the fewest in his career.

Steward Butler ran for 139 yards, Essray Taliaferro had 118 and Kevin Grooms had 108. It was the first time three Marshall players rushed for at least 100 yards in a game.

UAB (2-7, 1-4) finished with 464 total yards and 22 first downs but did not force a Marshall punt until the fourth quarter.

Jordan Howard had 123 yards on 22 carries for the Blazers.
