Best and worst of the BYU, Utah and USU college football regular seasons
BYU's Best - 1. Taysom Hill runs wild over then-No. 15 Texas »2 of 33 «
Things looked grim for BYU after its disheartening 19-16 loss to Virginia, and many fans felt pessimistic about the Cougars’ chances against the No. 15 Longhorns.
They were pleasantly surprised.
Quarterback Taysom Hill had a breakout game against Texas as he racked up 259 yards rushing and three touchdowns. Running back Jamaal Williams had a solid day of his own with 182 yards rushing. The Longhorn defense didn’t know what hit it as Texas lost 40-21.
This rout was so convincing, Texas head coach Mack Brown fired defense coordinator Manny Diaz as a result.
This was the high point of BYU’s regular season. BYU would have plenty of opportunities to beat ranked opponents, but Texas was the only one the Cougars could beat in 2013.
