Gilbert Out, McCoy/Ash Combo in at QB for Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Garrett Gilbert is out as the starting quarterback at No. 24 Texas. The Longhorns will go with former Texoma high school star Case McCoy and David Ash at UCLA.

McCoy and Ash came off the bench last week and rotated snaps in leading Texas to a come-from-behind 17-16 win over BYU. McCoy led the drive for the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter.

McCoy, who led Graham to the 2009 state championship game, is a sophomore and the younger brother of former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy. Ash is a freshman.

Gilbert had won the starting job in camp, but threw two early interceptions against BYU and was booed by the home crowd.

Quarterback isn't the only change for the Longhorns. Freshman Malcolm Brown is listed as the starting tailback after leading Texas in rushing the first two games.
