Mack Brown didn't mention Case McCoy’s name Monday. Texas co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin didn’t say it either. In 45 minutes with the media, David Ash’s name was mentioned once. So much for a continuing quarterback controversy at Texas.

Not that the quelling of such talk was a direct result of Ash’s play -- 4-of-7 for 125 yards against Texas Tech. It was more the result of the running game that has taken over the Longhorns’ offense. Back-to-back 400-yard games will do that.

Still, it is abundantly clear that Ash is the starter. McCoy is the backup. Sure, everything could be thrown out the window when Connor Brewer and Jalen Overstreet arrive for next season, but for now it is Ash’s team to run. And Harsin thinks he did a much better job of just that this past weekend against Texas Tech.
