Football

The Texas Longhorn football team fell to the BYU Cougars 40-21 on Saturday in Provo, Utah. The Texas defense gave up 550 yards rushing to the Cougars—a BYU school record. Of those 550 yards rushing, 259 yards came from BYU quarterback Taysom Hill.

Running back Daje Johnson left the game in the 1st quarter and suffered an ankle injury. He is ruled out of the Ole Miss game on Saturday Sept. 14. Quarterback David Ash left the game with a head and shoulder injury in the fourth quarter. He is listed as questionable for the Ole Miss game.

On Sunday, Head Coach Mack Brown announced that defensive coordinator Manny Diaz would be relieved of his duties. Shortly after, Mack announced that former Texas defensive coordinator in 2004 Greg Robison would take over immediately as Diaz's replacement. Robison was working as an analyst for the Longhorn Network this season before being hired to take over the Texas defense after the second game of the season. It was also announced that Manny Diaz would be reassigned within the athletic department.
