            === BYU sets rushing record in rout of No. 15 Texas ===
 
 Provo,  UT (Sports Network) - Taysom Hill racked up 388 yards of total offense
 as BYU used a dominating rushing game to take a 40-21 win over No. 15 Texas on
 Saturday.
 
 The  Cougars  (1-1) set a team  record with 550  rushing yards as Hill had 259
 yards  on 17  carries, with three touchdowns, Jamaal Williams had 182 yards on
 30  carries, and  Paul Lasike added a  touchdown on 15 carries and 87 yards to
 highlight the attack.
 
 Hill also went 9-for-26 for 129 yards with an interception and Justin Sorensen
 kicked four field goals in the win.
 
 David  Ash  was 19-for-34  for 251 yards  and two touchdowns,  but left in the
 fourth  quarter with an injury. Johnathan Gray had 13 carries for 90 yards for
 the  Longhorns (1-1),  who were coming off  a 56-7 blowout of New Mexico State
 last week.
 
 The  start of this game was delayed for nearly two hours due to a thunderstorm
 that passed through the area.
 
 BYU  began the  game with the ball  and went to the ground attack immediately,
 with runs of 12 yards by Williams, and 13 yards by Lasike setting up a 34-yard
 field goal from Sorensen for a 3-0 lead less than three minutes in.
 
 Later  in the first, Texas took the lead as Ash and Mike Davis got together on
 a  57-yard touchdown,  but just over a  minute later Hill ripped off a 68-yard
 run into the end zone for a 10-7 advantage with 2:17 left in the first.
 
 The Longhorns' first possession of the second half bore fruit, as a nine-play,
 76-yard drive was capped on a 2-yard touchdown run by Joe Bergeron for a 14-10
 lead with 10 1/2 minutes left in the first half.
 
 The  Cougars, though,  came right back down  the field as the 10th play of the
 75-yard  march saw Hill  take the ball into the end zone for a 17-14 lead with
 7:48 to play.
 
 After a three-and-out from Texas, BYU made it a 24-14 game thanks to a 10-yard
 run  from Lasike.  All 59  yards of  the nine-play  drive were  gained on  the
 ground.
 
 Sorenson  gave  the team a 27-14  lead at the break  as he hit a 32-yard field
 goal with just four seconds to play.
 
 BYU's  first  possession of the  second half saw the  team go the distance, as
 Cody  Hoffman's 31-yard catch helped to set up a 26-yard run into the end zone
 by Hill for a 34-14 lead.
 
 Ash  and  Davis got together on  a 23-yard score on Texas' ensuing possession,
 but Sorenson countered with a 36-yard field goal on the Cougars' next touch.
 
 Sorensen  added  a 24-yard field  goal with 1:31 to  play in the third quarter
 for a 40-21 lead.
 
 Texas  crossed midfield  early in the fourth  quarter, but an Ash pass to John
 Harris on 4th-and-3 from the 29 fell incomplete and the team failed to convert
 another fourth down attempt later in the game.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Davis  led  all receivers  in the  game with  eight catches  for 114 yards ...
 Despite  all  the yards on  the ground,  BYU held the  ball for only 31:05 ...
 Hoffman  finished with two catches for 63 yards ... The Cougars have won three
 of the past four games against the Longhorns.
