Mack Brown to start Case McCoy at quarterback against Kansas State

Monday November 26th, 2012

An erratic, turnover-filled start by sophomore David Ash in a 20-13 Thanksgiving night loss to TCU added fuel to a simmering quarterback controversy at Texas.

Coach Mack Brown isn't keeping his starting quarterback a mystery preparing for Kansas State on Saturday. He announced Case McCoy will start, while Ash is listed as questionable with a rib injury.

McCoy relieved Ash late in the first half against TCU after the Texas starter threw two interceptions in the red zone and fumbled the ball away inside his own 20.

McCoy, a junior, has completed 28 of 42 for 408 yards, 4 touchdowns and an interception in eight games in 2012.
