Gray’s 2 TDs send Texas over Kansas State, 31-21

KSAL Sports - September 22, 2013 5:59 am

Johnathan Gray rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns, David Ash threw a 63-yard touchdown pass and Texas beat Kansas State 31-21 Saturday night in the Big 12 opener for both teams.

Gray became Texas’ first 100-yard rusher on the season and Texas’ defense, pushed around in two consecutive losses, put up a solid and energetic performance, forcing three critical second-half turnovers.

Ash, who missed the previous game with concussion-like symptoms, passed for 166 yards in the first half but missed the second with a new head injury. Senior Case McCoy took over, leading two touchdown drives.

Texas coach Mack Brown has been under intense pressure after three sub-par seasons and a bad start this year. The victory allowed Texas (2-2, 1-0) to avoid its first 1-3 start since 1956.

John Hubert scored two touchdowns and Tyler Lockett had 13 catches for 237 yards for Kansas S
