After defeating the Rice Owls in week one 34-9, the Horns squeaked out a 17-16 victory over BYU tonight in Austin. It was literally a tale of two halves. Before the season, the Longhorns tapped Garrett Gilbert to be the starting QB to start the year. He was the starting QB last season when the Horns went 5-7, their first losing season since 1997. That experiment appears to have ended tonight. After throwing two interceptions in the first half, the Horns benched Gilbert and brought in Case McCoy and David Ash (a true freshman) in a unique alternating arrangement to replace him. David Ash was apparently committed to running the football every chance he got, a-la John Chiles, who was eventually moved to the receiver position. Case McCoy led the team much like his brother used to do. When he came into the game, the Longhorns looked like a completely different and better team. It was largely because of Case McCoy and Malcom Brown, a true freshman running back of a caliber that we has not seen at Texas in a good while, that Texas ultimately won the game. Unless I am mistaken, Sophomore QB Case McCoy, the brother of Colt McCoy, will be named as the starting QB going into the game against UCLA at the Rose Bowl next week. At least I hope so.
