It’s been a long day for the Texas Longhorns as they have been dominated by the rival Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry on Saturday from the opening whistle.
If the beatdown delivered from the Sooners wasn’t enough, the Longhorns suffered what could be a big loss in the fourth quarter.
Despite the Longhorns being down 41 points, Ash was still under center late in the game and suffered an injury to his left wrist. Ash was immediately taken to the locker room by the medical staff for x-rays.
Ash entered the game as a very efficient passer throwing for 1,276 yards and eleven touchdowns. The sophomore signal-caller only had one interception on the season going into the Red River Rivalry.
The Longhorns need to hope that Ash’s injury is not significant. If he is forced to miss an extended period of time due to the injury, junior quarterback Case McCoy would get the start. Case is the younger brother of former Longhorns star and current Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy.
McCoy has played in 16 games during his three-year career with the Longhorns. Out of those 16 games, he has only started five times. McCoy has seven touchdowns and four interception on his career. He also holds the school record for most consecutive passes to start a career without an interception with 124.
