AUSTIN, Texas (October 29, 2012)--The Texas Longhorns are sticking with David Ash as starting quarterback.
Case McCoy replaced Ash late in UT’s game against Kansas and McCoy drove the Longhorns to the game-winning touchdown in a 21-17 win, but coach Mack Brown said Ash will still be the starter when the Longhorns (6-2, 3-2 Big 12) travel this week to play at No. 20 Texas Tech (6-2, 3-2).
Ash has been one of the highest-rated passers in the country with 1,726 yards and 12 touchdowns, but Ash has thrown only one touchdown in the last three games.
McCoy relieved Ash against Kansas with the Longhorns trailing 14-7 in the fourth quarter and took every snap on two touchdown drives.
His touchdown pass to D.J. Grant with 12 seconds left was the game winner.
