Texas QB shook off flu with PB&Js and kids' drink

Posted:
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas quarterback Colt McCoy had the flu last week and says he really 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 when the game started.

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

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