Texas quarterback David Ash has been ruled out for next Saturday’s game against Oklahoma.
The junior suffered a concussion in Texas’ 40-21 loss at BYU on Sept. 7 and sat out the Longhorns’ 44-23 defeat to Ole Miss on Sept. 14.
Ash returned against Kansas State but was forced to leave the game early and did not play in the 31-30 win over Iowa State on Thursday night.
With Ash sidelined, Texas will go with Case McCoy at quarterback once again. McCoy has thrown for 574 yards and two scores this season but missed several throws in the win over the Cyclones.
Will Texas pull the redshirt off of freshman Tyrone Swoopes?
Oklahoma has dominated the Longhorns in the last two seasons, and not having Ash on the field next weekend only adds to the challenge for Texas.
