Texas QB Ash to miss BYU game

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas quarterback David Ash, who missed most of last season with concussion symptoms, was injured again and will miss this week's game against BYU.

Ash took several hard hits in a 38-7 win over North Texas. Longhorns coach Charlie Strong says Ash didn't show any symptoms during the game, but that the coaching staff got a call later that night.

Strong did not detail what problems Ash was experiencing.

Ash ran for a touchdown and passed for another. But he also took several blows to the head, including a tackle when he bent low to pick up a fumble, and twice more when his helmet bounced off the turf.

Sophomore Tyrone Swoopes will start for Texas (1-0) against the Cougars (1-0).
