"In terms of active coaching and where most of us go to get advice, Mack is one of those resources," Brown said. "He's a really, really good man."

Oops. I don't think Brown said that about himself. I think you meant to attribute that quote to Bronco.

Does anyone realize that if BYU beats Texas, they'll be 3-0 in their last 3 games vs. teams from the South? Pretty cool stat. It's a great feeling to be 2-0 vs. Texas. Here's to that undefeated record to remain on Saturday!

Boise, ID

This game will be tough. Hopefully the defense plays tough and gets pressure on the qb. If Qezada is back and Heaps 1st half was just him shaking off the rust, BYU could pull out a big win in Texas. Go Cougs!

Chomping at the bit! Can't wait for Saturday. Man but I love college football!

Eagle Mountain, UT

If BYU's defense can play a solid game, BYU has a good chance to win this game. I think the offense will be more productive but the key will be defense.
Go Cougars!

I'm excited about this game, and luckily, I have a 3D capable tv. That will be interesting. Interesting too is that both BYU and Texas have ESPN contracts .... hmmm.

I like our chances, but I had this game picked as a loss. I'm thinking 24-21 or so.

West Jordan, UT

I have this game picked as a loss for BYU but given all that is going on right now with BYU and Big XII I think this is a must win game. I am not saying they will win, but they really, REALLY need to win.


Before the season I thought that if we finished 10-2 before the bowl game it would be a solid season. This is one of the three games that I figure we have a higher probability of losing unfortunately. But even with that, I think that if our defense plays the way they did last week and the offense figures things out we will be right in the game and maybe be able to pull it out. Texas will score more points than Ole Miss did, so we have to be able to account for that.

It's a good day to be a Cougar! I'll be in DKR stadium wearing blue and yelling like crazy! Rah rah!

Texas 17

Mark it down, ha I beat Chrissy B

Highland, UT

I have no idea how this game will turn out but I am really looking forward to watching it. This is the kind of game we should see a lot of as an independent.

With the guys we have in the trenches I like the fact we can compete, we aren't out manned in the trenches, so unless we get beat by trick plays and unless our offense can't score, we should have a good chance to pull off the win. Go cougs.
