Texas quarterback David Ash will not play against No. 11 Oklahoma in next week’s Red River Rivalry matchup in Dallas because of lingering effects of his head injury, team trainers announced Saturday.

Case McCoy, a senior who is 1-1 as a starter this season for the Longhorns (3-2, 2-0 in Big 12), will start against OU in the Oct. 12 matchup at the Cotton Bowl (11 a.m., WFAA/Ch. 8).

McCoy will be backed up by freshman Tyrone Swoopes, who has not played this season.

Ash, a junior who has a 14-7 career mark as the Longhorns’ starter, sustained a concussion in the team’s Sept. 7 game at Brigham Young and did not play Sept. 14 against Ole Miss.

Concussion-related symptoms resurfaced during a Sept. 21 victory over Kansas State and Ash left that game in the second quarter and has not returned.

Ash did not travel with the team to Thursday’s 31-30 victory over Iowa State.

Kenny Boyd, Texas’ head athletic trainer for football, announced Saturday that cornerback Sheroid Evans also will miss the Oklahoma game because of a knee injury sustained against Iowa State.
