Here’s another newsmaking suggestion: The Cougars really should consider beating Texas in September. If anything crystallized Monday during BYU’s annual Football Media Day, it is how much that Sept. 6 game in Austin means to the Cougars. It’s not as if Texas and other Big 12 schools would be so impressed that they immediately would vote to expand the conference, but...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
