David Ash makes magic happen, and Charlie Daniels is amazed

Look! A Texas quarterback does something great!

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.
