BYU football was successful in derailing the much maligned rushing defense of the Longhorns.
The Cougars pounded the ball on the ground as Jamaal Williams added 182 yards in 30 carries and Paul Lasike contributed 87 yards in 15 carries. BYU football exploited the weakness of Texas and that it is a matter of continuity if they can do that against the Utes.

In the game against Oregon State, quarterback Wilson Travis completed 19 of his 33 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns and he also rushed for 142 yards and three touchdowns in 13 carries. Surely, he is the main player for Utah to keep the chains moving against the defense of BYU.

In the receiving end, Dres Anderson, Jake Murphy and Westlee Tonga will always be part of the offense for the Utes.
