AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — No. 11 Texas is heading into their annual rivalry with Oklahoma with plans to keep playing two quarterbacks.
The Longhorns are off to a 4-0 start behind the rotation of Case McCoy and David Ash. They’ll be stepping onto a much bigger stage against the No. 3 Sooners.
McCoy is just a sophomore and Ash is a freshman Texas coach Mack Brown says he’s not worried about rotating his young quarterbacks in a rivalry where momentum can swing from play to play. Both played big roles in a rally to beat BYU and two road wins over UCLA and Iowa State.
The Sooners will have junior Landry Jones at quarterback when the teams meet Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
