The Texas Longhorns shrugged off a shaky first 27 minutes in their season opener against New Mexico State, but their opponent in their second game of the season will not be so easily dominated.
The 'Horns will travel to Provo, Utah this weekend to take on the BYU Cougars, and they will have to deal with more than just the altitude.
Bronco Mendenhall's Cougars posted the FBS' third-ranked defense last season, although they will have replaced a number of pieces on defense, including first-round draft pick defensive end Ezekiel Ansah.
One player on which the Cougars will be reliant this season is senior linebacker Kyle Van Noy, and Texas will have to make it a point to locate him on every play.
The Longhorns proved to be offensively efficient in their season opener, but they will see an entirely different and improved team in game No. 2.
