BYU football: Hill-led rout triggered big changes at Texas
The Texas defense, which Hill shredded a year ago in Provo, was outstanding. The Mean Green managed only 94 yards. Their quarterbacks completed three of 17 passes for 15 yards. They were intercepted four times. Still, BYU is the game Texas players and fans has been anticipating for months — since the beat down.
"I wouldn’t necessarily say we circled it," said senior receiver John Harris, "but we definitely have been waiting for this one. It was a hard-fought loss for us. We didn’t perform the way we wanted to perform. So we are really looking forward to this one."
Are the Longhorns seeking revenge?
"I wouldn’t say it was necessarily revenge," Harris said. "We just want to go out there and redeem ourselves from that game. That wasn’t us and that’s not who we are now."
Said Diggs: "We heard about that game a lot. We still hear about it. ... [But] I can’t wait until you see us."
