Texas Longhorns quarterback David Ash bounced back from a wrist injury suffered in last week's loss to Oklahoma to throw for 274 yards and a touchdown in the Longhorns' 56-50 victory over Baylor.

It was feared that Ash had fractured his wrist, which would have forced him to miss at least a few weeks. However, the injury was revealed to be a deep bruise, and Ash was back on the field in an effective manner on Saturday. In other Texas injury news, offensive lineman Donald Hawkins (ankle) and linebacker Jordan Hicks (hip) sat out Saturday's game, and are listed as questionable for the Longhorns' Oct. 27 matchup against Kansas.

Elsewhere, Houston Cougars quarterback David Piland suffered a concussion in the team's 72-42 thrashing at the hands of SMU on Thursday. and is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Texas-El Paso. Piland threw for 180 yards on 15-of-25 passing, but also threw two of the Cougars' six interceptions in the game. Linebacker Lloyd Allen was sidelined with a leg injury, and is also questionable for Saturday.

The Texas A&M Aggies and LSU Tigers both appear to have escaped their matchup in relatively healthy fashion, while the Rice Owls didn't have any injuries to report in their loss to Tulsa.
