Head coach Mack Brown and his Texas Longhorns got their biggest win in quite some time Saturday. The Longhorns handed the rival Oklahoma Sooners their first loss of the season, winning the Red River Shootout 36-20.

The Longhorns are still without the services of starting quarterback David Ash, who hasn’t played in a game since the Longhorns defeated the Kansas State Widlcats 31-21 on September 21.

In his absence, senior Case McCoy has stepped up and helped the Longhorns put together a three-game winning streak.

“It is Case’s team until David returns — until we’re told David is returning to practice, Case is the only one on this team that’s taken a span at quarterback,” Brown told reporters Monday’s Big 12 teleconference via College Football Talk. “When David returns, obviously we’ll have to look at that but that’s not an issue.”

On the season, McCoy is 75-of-123 for 764 yards with four touchdowns and just one interception. He’s also rushed for a touchdown.

The Longhorns have a bye this week. They’ll try to make it four straight wins and a perfect 4-0 start in the Big 12 when they take on the TCU Horned Frogs on October 26.
