AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas will face BYU this Saturday for the first time since 1988. The Cougars opened the season with a 14-13 win over Ole Miss. Here are a few things to know about BYU.
Ole Miss rushed for 64 yards against BYU.
That means 101 teams had a better rushing output on the opening weekend than the Rebels. And it is not as if Houston Nutt didn't try to establish the run. The Rebels had 29 attempts. More alarming, there were no negative yards in that rushing total. The Rebels did not give up a sack.
With BYU visiting Texas, line play will be key. Texas will need to get a pass rush and find some running room against the Cougars.
