Mike Davis had a sensational touchdown catch in the fourth quarter of Texas' blowout win over New Mexico State but also dropped a pass and lost a fumble. The Longhorns will need him to be more consistent against BYU this week.
Jalen Overstreet made the most of his late playing time, running for 92 yards and two touchdowns on Texas' last two drives of the game while Peter Jinkens and Mykkele Thompson did not help the Longhorns on defense as much as expected.
Taking over the spot first-round pick and current New Orleans Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro occupied last season, Quandre Diggs is thriving as the Longhorns' nickel back, showing his versatility at many different positions on the field.
Look for Texas to win by more than the touchdown it's favored by while Ohio State is a lock to cover a 28-point spread against San Diego State and Miami, a home underdog this week, could pull an upset over in-state rival Florida.
Something's gotta give this weekend when Texas travels to Provo and face BYU, who has been extremely tough to beat under Bronco Mendenhall while the Longhorns have been one of the best road teams in the country under head coach Mack Brown.
