AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Jordan Shipley set a Texas record with 273 yards receiving, including an 88-yard touchdown, and the No. 2 Longhorns shook off a slow start for a 35-3 win over Central Florida on Saturday.
The sixth-year senior broke the previous best of 242 yards set in the 1987 Bluebonnet Bowl by Tony Jones. The touchdown came early in the fourth quarter on a drive that started at the 1.
Colt McCoy passed for 470 yards with two touchdowns. He was just shy of current Texas running backs coach Major Applewhite's school-record 473 yards in the 2001 Holiday Bowl.
Texas (9-0) led 14-3 at halftime on two touchdown runs by Cody Johnson. McCoy hit James Kirkendoll with a 14-yard TD pass in the third before the big strike to Shipley, who also shattered the previous regular-season mark of 198 set in 1979 by Johnny "Lam" Jones.
Central Florida (5-4) managed just 151 total yards.
