Texas QB Ash out, Case McCoy to start against Oklahoma
Texas football announced that senior quarterback Case McCoy will start for the Longhorns against Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry.
The school announced that McCoy, not David Ash, will be the starter against the Sooners. McCoy completed 26 of 45 passes for 244 yards and a touchdown in the win at Iowa State on Thursday, scoring the game-winning touchdown on a one-yard sneak after Johnathan Gray nearly fumbled the game away.
David Ash has missed all or part of Texas' previous four games due to a head injury or concussion-like symptoms. He played the first half of of the Big 12 opener against Kansas State on Sept. 21, but didn't return after halftime due to a possible head injury.
McCoy's challenge will be jump-starting an inconsistent offense against a Sooners defense that has been one of the most impressive units in the Big 12 this season. Oklahoma, ranked No. 11 in the AP poll, hosts TCU on Saturday night.
If Case McCoy can replicate this toss a few times, it would help the Longhorns' cause.
