David Ash could play against Kansas State

Cooper Neill

Case McCoy is still expected to make the start for the Longhorns against Kansas State.

Although Case McCoy will make the start at quarterback for the No. 18 Texas Longhorns on Saturday, Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman reports that quarterback David Ash will suit up for the game and could play if McCoy struggles.

Listed as questionable for the game against the No. 6 Kansas State Wildcats, Ash suffered a ribs injury during a 20-13 loss to the TCU Horned Frogs on Thanksgiving. The sophomore has completed 193 of 285 passes for 2,458 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2012. Against TCU, Ash completed fewer than 50 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions.

McCoy, a junior, has seen time in seven games this season for the Longhorns, completing 28 of 42 passes for 408 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. Against TCU he finished with 11 of 17 passes completed for 110 yards with an interception. Neither quarterback threw a touchdown against the Horned Frogs.

Saturday's game is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. CT on ABC.
