Longhorns will stay with David Ash at QB against Texas Tech


Case McCoy may have had to come in and win Saturday’s game against Kansas for Texas, but Day 1 starter David Ash will take the field first this weekend against Texas Tech.

Mack Brown said in his Monday teleconference that there would be no change at quarterback despite Ash’s poor play against the Jayhawks.

Ash gives the Horns the best chance to win, but the headscratcher from Saturday was replacing Ash with McCoy in the fourth quarter… and then calling seven straight run plays. McCoy ended up proving his mettle by leading the game-winning drive, but the Horns also started giving the ball to guys like Marquise Goodwin and D.J. Monroe too, something that should have happened more than three total times in the game.
