BYU Cougars vs. Texas Longhorns Complete Game Preview

BYU will have a huge challenge on Saturday, when the 15th-ranked Texas Longhorns roll into Provo. Led by standout quarterback David Ash and a no-huddle offense, the Cougars defense is facing a large task.

The D was outstanding against Virginia, giving up only 3.1 yards per play and 223 total yards. The same can't be said of the offense, as the "go fast, go hard" approach wasn't executed well in Charlottesville. Taysom Hill completed only 13 of 40 passes, and although Jamaal Williams rushed for 144 yards, it still wasn't enough for the win.

The Cougs will look to change that against a Longhorns defense that gave up 346 yards to New Mexico State, and at home, it could be a feasible accomplishment. Texas is a good team, and BYU has its work cut out.

When: Saturday, Sept. 7; 5 p.m. MDT

Where: LaVell Edwards Stadium, Provo, Utah

TV: ESPN2

Radio: KSL 1160 AM/102.7 FM; BYU Radio, Sirius XM 143

Spread: Texas (-7.5), per VegasInsider.com
