QB Ash to miss Texas' game at Iowa State, McCoy to start
OCT 02, 2013 3:20p ET
David Ash will not travel to Texas' game against Iowa State on Thursday, the school announced Wednesday afternoon. Case McCoy will start for Texas.
Ash suffered a concussion in a loss to BYU and missed the following game against Ole Miss. He returned against Kansas State, but suffered more symptoms of a head injury and missed the second half of the 31-21 win.
McCoy was 5-of-9 for 59 yards after replacing Ash against K-State. He completed 24-of-36 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed five times for 14 yards.
Texas could play freshman Tyrone Swoopes, who turned heads with a strong performance in the spring game, but has yet to appear in a game this season, preserving a possible redshirt season.
Brown noted this week that the coaching staff had prepared Swoopes to play for the last three weeks and there was a plan to get him playing time alongside McCoy, if necessary.
Ash has made 22 starts and is the Big 12's most experienced quarterback. He was 53-of-87 for 760 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions so far this season.
"Texas also announced that receiver Mike Davis (ankle) would be a game-time decision. He has caught 20 passes for 223 yards and four touchdowns this season.
Junior offensive tackle Josh Cochran (shoulder) will not travel to Ames."
