Social media buzz ahead of Saturday’s game between Texas, BYU

Texas and BYU are set to face off for a crucial game for both programs. At stake for both is a chance to compete for a Big 12 title for another week.

The BYU Cougars (5-2) have made the most of their production despite ranking dead last in the Big 12 in total yards per game (301.9). The team enters Austin with a tremendous opportunity to put its program on the map for big time recruits.

You can expect plenty of enthusiasm from BYU faithful who reside in Texas and haven’t seen their team play in their home state. The wide-reaching fanbase certainly has this game circled.

Texas gives the keys to backup quarterback Maalik Murphy for his first start of his college career. Here’s a look at what Texas fans are saying ahead of the game.
