Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy calls the Texas Tech Red Raiders-Texas Longhorns bet

TEMPE, Arizona. – Colt McCoy paid his debt on Tuesday.

Three days after his Texas Longhorns lost to the Texas Tech Red Raiders, his head coach’s alma mater Kliff Kingsbury, the Arizona Cardinals’ backup quarterback had to wear a Texas hat, jersey and shorts Tech.

But it wasn’t Kingsbury’s bet.

“No, no, I wouldn’t do that to him,” the former Red Raiders coach said. “I wasn’t going to make that bet because I’m not wearing that s—burnt orange, I can tell you that.”

The Red Raiders beat then-No. 22-ranked Texas, 37-34, in overtime on Saturday, the first time Texas Tech has beaten its state rivals at home since 2008.

McCoy, who played for Texas from 2005 to 2009, is the only Longhorn on the Cardinals. In addition to Kingsbury, Arizona has two other Texas Tech products: wide receiver Antoine Wesley and assistant coach Kenny Bell.

But Kingsbury didn’t approach McCoy, who is currently on injured reserve with a calf sprain after the upset.

“He’s hurt,” Kingsbury said. “You can see his face. It looks like his dog died, man. I don’t rub it.

“He’s like Mr. Texas. That’s the guy in the state of Texas. So, I wouldn’t do it that way.”
