Game Preview


The Texas Longhorns will play the BYU Cougars at Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas, in an attempt to recover from a difficult loss. There have only been 5 previous meetings between the two schools, with BYU having a 4-1 overall advantage and winning the most recent one 41-7 in 2014.


BYU travels to face the Texas Longhorns after defeating Texas Tech at home. BYU, which is 5-2, travels to Austin with the chance to produce the most significant upset of the current conference campaign. With Kedon Slovis at the helm, BYU is 5-2 SU after beginning out 3-0 before going 2-2 in Big 12 conference action, dropping to Kansas 38-27 and TCU 44-11 in a thrashing on the road.


Kedon Slovis’ arm has been the key to BYU’s offensive triumph in 2023. Slovis has completed 56.6% of his throws through 7 contests for 1,519 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. Slovis had one of his most productive performances of the year the previous week versus Texas Tech thanks to the Cougars’ development of a running game, finishing 15-27 for 127 yards and 2 touchdowns without any interceptions and only a single sack.



Texas is ranked seventh and has a record of 6-1, but after losing their lone game to Oklahoma outright just a couple weeks ago, the Longhorns haven’t been quite as dominating as they were after their emphatic road victory against Alabama in Week 2.


Steve Sarkisian, the head coach of the Longhorns, will undoubtedly make an early effort to build up the run and put BYU’s run defense to a trial. Quinn Ewers, the quarterback, is suffering with a shoulder ailment, so regardless of whether he plays, Texas might go back to its potent group of running backs, which is headlined by Jonathon Brooks. Naturally, if that drops off, the Longhorns may switch to their passing approach with Xavier Worthy and Adonai Mitchell while, if required, deploying highly recruited quarterback Arch Manning.
