Recap: Texas vs. BYU

Austin, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Taysom Hill passed for 181 yards and rushed for 99 yards and three touchdowns as the BYU Cougars easily defeated the Texas Longhorns, 41-7, in non-conference action at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium Saturday.

Hill completed 18-of-27 passing with an interception, and carried the ball a game-high 24 times for BYU (2-0). Jamaal Williams carried 19 times for 89 yards, and Jordan Leslie caught seven passes for a team-high 85 yards in the win. Adam Hine rushed for two scores for BYU.

Tyrone Swoopes connected on 20-of-31 passing for 176 yards, a touchdown and an interception for Texas (1-1). Johnathan Gray carried 14 times for 47 yards and a touchdown, and John Harris hauled in eight receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

BYU kicker Trevor Samson was the only player to put any points on the board in the entire first half. He connected on a 21-yard boot with 3:30 left in the first quarter to give the Cougars a 3-0 lead, then a 29-yarder in the second quarter with 6:34 left to play. BYU took a 6-0 advantage into the midway break.

The third quarter belonged solely to BYU. Hill scored his first touchdown run with 12:06 left in the period on a 30-yard dash to the end zone, capping a nine-play, 75-yard drive.

Hine put BYU up 20-0 with a 16-yard scoring run with 9:22 remaining in the period.

Hill capitalized again for touchdown runs of two yards and one yard, respectively, to give the Cougars a 34-0 edge with 4:33 still left to play in the quarter.

Texas finally broke the scoreless streak with 29 seconds to play in the third when Swoopes hit Harris for a 13-yard scoring strike to cut the BYU lead to 34-7.

Hine closed out the scoring in the contest with an eight-yard run that put BYU up 41-7 with 8:05 left to play. The touchdown run capped a nine-play, 45-yard drive that ate up over three and a half minutes off the clock.

BYU registered 28 first downs in the contest compared top Texas's 15, and the Cougars easily outgained the Longhorns in the ground game, 248-82. Texas averaged a mere 2.3 yards per carry, and converted just 3-of-15 third-down attempts in the ball game.
