Even though Texas coach Charlie Strong was not around for the Longhorns' 2013 shellacking at the hands of BYU, the loss is not being ignored at UT's facilities this week.
Texas plays BYU Saturday, and there are signs up at Texas that say "Believe You're Unbeatable."
Last season, BYU ran over, under, around and through Texas. The Cougars ran for 550 yards in a 40-21 win that immediately led to the dismissal of then-defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. Against North Texas in the season opener, Strong's defense gave up just 94 yards to North Texas, including 15 passing yards. We're going to go out on a limb and say that Texas will not give up 550 yards to BYU again.
But while this year's game is at home for Texas, it could be just as tough for other reasons. Monday, Strong announced that QB David Ash would miss the BYU game after he suffered a possible concussion against North Texas.
