Both Oklahoma and Texas will be without key players for the Red Rivalry matchup Saturday morning (11 a.m., WFAA/Ch. 8) at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

Oklahoma senior linebacker and defensive leader Corey Nelson suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle in Saturday’s 20-17 win against TCU.

Coach Bob Stoops said that Nelson is scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday and will likely miss the remainder of the season. Nelson played at Dallas Skyline High School.

Texas quarterback David Ash was ruled out of the game Saturday because of lingering effects of his head injury.

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. McCoy will be backed up by freshman Tyrone Swoopes.

Cornerback Sheroid Evans also will miss the Oklahoma game because of a knee injury sustained against Iowa State.
