Texas vs. BYU: 10 Things We Learned in Longhorns' Loss
Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports
Taysom Hill and the Cougars embarrassed Texas in Provo.

The Texas Longhorns' aspirations for their 2013 season took a major hit in Saturday's 40-21 loss to the BYU Cougars. The loss taught us a lot about the 2013 'Horns—chiefly to not expect much.

BYU's Taysom Hill became the latest mobile quarterback to torch Texas, running for 259 yards and three touchdowns despite completing under 35 percent of his passes. 

The rest of the Cougars added another 291 yards in the upset, racking up more yards against Texas than any other team in their history.

Meanwhile, the Longhorns averaged just 3.4 yards per carry and lost both starting quarterback David Ash and slot receiver Daje Johnson to injury. 

In short, the two-hour lightning delay was when Texas' night peaked.

The loss will cause fans to once again taper their expectations for the once-promising 2013 season, as well as call for head coach Mack Brown's head with renewed vigor.

One thing's for sure: This team has more problems than just the quarterback and head coach.

This and more in the 10 things we learned from this embarrassing loss.
