BYU looks to get another win this week. This time they are in Austin going against the Texas Longhorns. Here are 5 Texas players that BYU needs to look out for.
The senior is on the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy watch lists. Last season, Randall recorded 13 tackles-for-loss, one sack, eight quarterback pressures and two blocked kicks.
Up for the Butkas Award, Bednarik Award, Nagurski Trophy and Lombardi Award, Robinson led the Lornhorns last season with 113 tackles to go along with eight tackles-for-loss, two sacks, two interceptions, two pass breakups, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble.
In his first collegiate game Saturday in Texas' win over Rice, Shipley, the younger brother of the Longhorns' all-time receptions leader Jordan Shipley, caught two passes for 54 yards, including a 36-yard touchdown. He also rushed three times for 25 yards.
The highly touted freshman gained 86 yards on 16 carries in his collegiate debut Saturday against Rice. It was the best start to a career by a Texas running back since Jamaal Charles rushed for 135 yards on 14 carries in 2005.
The junior, who retained the starting job after a shaky campaign last season, completed 13-of-23 passes for 239 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's win over Rice. The Longhorns are breaking in a new offense under first-year coordinator Bryan Harsin, who came from Boise State.
