Texas quarterback David Ash has been named the Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week after leading the Longhorns to a 66-31 victory over Ole Miss. The win gave the Longhorns their sixth consecutive 3-0 start.

Ash had an outstanding night, finishing 19-of-23 for a career-high 326 yards and four touchdowns, including 46 and 55-yard scores. Ash has now thrown seven TDs with no interceptions this year and tossed 96 consecutive passes without a pick dating back to last year.

The sophomore, who completed 15 straight passes at one point in the game, led the Horns to 676 yards of offense, its second-most yards in a game in school history. Texas registered 350 yards rushing and 326 passing to post better than 300 yards both rushing and passing for just the third time in school history and the first time in a road game.

Texas' 66 points were the most in a game since the 2005 Big 12 Championship when they defeated Colorado 70-3.

The Longhorns will get an extra week to prepare for their first Big 12 Conference game in Stillwater, Okla. as they have a bye-week before taking on Oklahoma State on September 29.
