As bad as the Texas Longhorns have looked through the first three weeks of the 2013 college football season, there is one glimmer of hope for head coach Mack Brown and his fading squad. Whilke rthey are coming back-to-back humiliating losses to the losses of BYU and Ole Miss, both of those losses were out of conference, and the Big-12 can still be won by Texas if they can turn their season around, and that will have to start this week against the Kansas State Wildcats, who are also looking to turn their season around after a Week 1 loss to FCS-foe North Dakota State.
The Horns just got some great news, as injured quarterback David Ash will return this week:
Texas quarterback David Ash will start against Kansas State, after he was cleared by the Longhorn medical staff Friday.
Ash had been dealing with concussion-like symptoms stemming from a head injury he received against BYU. He returned to practice on Tuesday after missing the Ole Miss contest. Ash wasn’t even present on the sidelines against the Rebels for precautionary reasons.
Ash has accounted for seven touchdowns in two games, passing for six and running 55 yards for another score.
