Ash 2 touchowns, 2 INT in Texas spring game

David Ash passed for two touchdowns and also threw two

interceptions as Texas unveiled a quicker up-tempo offense Saturday

night in its annual spring scrimmage.

Coach Mack Brown stressed at the start of spring drills he wants

to push a faster pace on offense, noting the success of other

programs around the country doing it.

Two of Ash’s first four drives against the No. 2 defense

included touchdown passes to Mike Davis and Kendall Sanders. Ash

threw his two interceptions when the Texas sprinkled several

starters into the defense against the first-time offense.

Texas also got its first look at freshman quarterback Tyrone

Swoopes, who had two strong runs after breaking tackles in the

backfield.

Texas went 9-4 last season and tied for third in the Big 12.
