Texas will retire Colt McCoy's No. 12 jersey before the Longhorns' game against Baylor on Oct. 30, Texas coach Mack Brown announced on Wednesday afternoon.

McCoy's jersey will be the sixth in program history to be retired.

Twice a Heisman finalist, McCoy won more games (45) in his four-year career than any player in college football history. He's also the school's all-time leader in total touchdowns, touchdown passes and passing yards.

Quarterback Vince Young was the last Longhorn to have his jersey retired, joining Earl Campbell, Tommy Nobis, Ricky Williams and Bobby Layne.

McCoy was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft, and may make his first career start against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
