The gentlemen representing the University of Texas are downright polite and respectful about their opponent this week. And it’s not because they’re coming off an incredibly humbling 5-7 campaign, just one year removed from playing in the national title game.
In UT’s Monday press conference, Brown and his players said a lot of nice things about Brigham Young University’s football program. Of course, they don’t want to provide any bulletin board fodder, but their respect has more to do with the way Brown approaches the game more than anything else. He expects his student-athletes to respect the opponents they square up against each week – and to earn their opponents’ respect in return – because that’s the way you respect the game of football.

Cougar Sportsline editor H. B. Arnett is predicting a 38-17 Brigham Young win over Texas in Austin this weekend.
The Cougar defense is very good this year and they’ll take care of business for as long as possible this Saturday, but in the end, I expect the offense to choke and sputter along the line of last week’s performance, which will eventually tucker out their faithful band of defensive-minded brothers.
This game will be a fairly low-scoring affair because Texas’ offense is still a work in progress, too; so, I’m calling it 20-13 or 20-10 in favor of UT. More >
