According to a Chron.com report, both Ash and McCoy will play in the team's opener against Wyoming on Sept. 1, and the two have been engaged in a battle for the starter's role for the last 20 months:
Before camp began, Brown stressed the importance of having one quarterback assert himself as the starter, and said he expected separation to happen. Lately, though, he and Harsin have reverted to last season's tactic of waxing enthusiastic about the advantages of a two-quarterback system.
"It's ideal to have both guys playing at a high level," Harsin said. "That's what you want."
"We want both guys to play," Harsin said. "There's strengths and weaknesses with both guys."
It remains to be seen if one player will finally assert himself as the true starter, but as has been the case of late, don't expect it to happen any time soon.
