Texas Longhorns quarterback David Ash has been listed a questionable for their game against the Ole Miss Rebels Saturday night. Ash left the fourth quarter of Saturday’s 40-21 loss to the BYU Cougars with shoulder and head injuries.
In the game, Ash was 19-of-34 for 251 yards and two touchdowns.
If Ash can’t go, the quarterback he’s been in competition with throughout his entire career, Case McCoy, will probably start.
“The guys trust Case,” Texas head coach Mack Brown told the Associated Press. “There won’t be panic if David’s not out there.”
McCoy and Ash have split time throughout their time at Texas, but Ash won the job in the preseason and had played pretty well through two games.
McCoy, the younger brother of former Texas start quarterback Colt McCoy, has passed for 1,831 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions in his Texas career. The senior has appeared in both games this year, completing seven of 12 passes for 85 yards.
Freshman Tyrone Swoopes, who was rated a four star by Rivals.com and was considered the 13th best dual threat quarterback in the class of 2013, could also be in the mix if Ash can’t go.
Kickoff between the Longhorns and Rebels is at 8:00 pm EST and the game is on the Longhorn Network.
