David Ash will start at quarterback for the Texas Longhorns in the season opener against Wyoming. Mack Brown ended what has essentially been a year long QB battle Wednesday, announcing Ash has beaten out Case McCoy for the Horns starting job.
Brown said Ash had separated slightly from McCoy in camp, but maintains both will still see action against Wyoming, although he's unsure how UT will work McCoy into the game.
Ash started six games a season ago, including playing the entire Holiday Bowl against Cal. Brown had maintained throughout spring and summer camp the position remained up for grabs.
