"It was a staff discussion yesterday," Texas coach Mack Brown of the decision to name Ash the starter for Texas Tech. "David's body of work has been really good. He has played as one of the best quarterbacks in the country."
Ash failed to generate any significant offense for most of three quarters against a woeful Kansas team before he was pulled with 9:37 left in the fourth. McCoy, who split time as a starter in 2011 with Ash before losing the competition to start this season, orchestrated a come-from-behind 21-17 win with two scoring drives on Texas' last two possessions.
"He was prepared and ready," Brown said of McCoy.
Now Texas is poised and ready to play McCoy at any time.
"We would not hesitate to put Case in after Saturday for sure," Brown said.
