Look! A Texas quarterback does something great!
Horns have come alive.I couldn't even follow that last t d.— Charlie Daniels (@CharlieDaniels) December 30, 2012
Entering the fourth quarter, Texas quarterback David Ash had not had a stellar Alamo Bowl. Playing without a Case McCoy safety net, Ash had thrown a pick, completed only about half of his passes and seen backup Alex King (A PUNTER) called on to heft four throws.
With about 11 minutes remaining, though, Ash completed six straight passes in a single drive, including this sack-evading sideline toss to Johnathan Gray, which brought the Horns within three points all of a sudden.
Other than that pass rush (EIGHT sacks!), it's been hard to say exactly what Texas has done right all night. But if Ash can finish out the game at this level, not only might Texas pull this one out, but Horns fans will finally have themselves a glimmer of quarterbacking hope. A glimmer!
Also I don't think I know what this means:
David Ash doing a Peter Frampton thing.— @BarkingCarnival (@BarkingCarnival) December 30, 2012
