BYU shred Longhorns, 40-21
PROVO, Utah (AP) — Taysom Hill led a big night on the ground for BYU, rushing for 259 yards — second-most in school history — and three touchdowns to help the Cougars beat No. 15 Texas 40-21 on Saturday night in a game that was delayed for nearly two hours by lightning.
Hill was masterful in guiding the team's new read-option offense as the Cougars (1-1) rolled up 550 yards rushing, eclipsing a 55-year-old team record. It's also the most yards rushing Texas (1-1) has ever allowed.
The elusive Hill scored on runs of 68, 20 and 26 yards. He came close to breaking BYU's single-game rushing record of 272 yards, a mark set by quarterback Eldon Fortie in 1962.
David Ash threw two TD passes to Mike Davis and Joe Bergeron had a short TD.
Texas (1-1) returns home to host Ole Miss this Saturday. Broadcast tme is 6pm on 1200 WOAI.
Manziel leads A&M to 65-28 win over Sam Houston
KRISTIE RIEKEN, AP Sports Writer
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Johnny Manziel threw for 426 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score in less than three quarters to give No. 7 Texas A&M to a 65-28 win over Sam Houston State on Saturday night.
The Heisman Trophy-winner played about a quarter more than he did last week when he sat out the first half serving a suspension for what the school called an "inadvertent" violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs.
Texas A&M's suspension-depleted defense was burned for several big plays by the Bearkats, the FCS runner-up the last two seasons, in the final tuneup before next week's rematch with top-ranked Alabama.
Sam Houston's Timothy Flanders had 170 yards rushing with two scores and added a TD reception.
Texas A&M's Mike Evans had a career-high 155 yards receiving, Tra Carson ran for 51 with two touchdowns and Ben Malena had 68 yards rushing and a score.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — In a record-setting performance, the University of the Incarnate Word rolled over visiting Texas College on Saturday night, 69-0 at Benson Stadium for football program's first win as a member of NCAA Division I. The Cardinals (1-1) scored a touchdown on eight of their first 10 possessions en route to a school-record 69 points while also posting the first shutout in school history. Senior fullback Matt Bass led the scoring with three touchdowns, two rushing and one receiving. UIW racked up 525 total yards of offense and held the NAIA Steers (0-2) to just 71 total yards.

UTSA (1-1) tied the score 7-7 when Kenny Bias scored on a 6-yard run with 4:22 left in the first quarter. But Walsh scored from 4 yards out in the second quarter and the Cowboys led 35-7 at halftime.
Walsh left with six minutes left in the third and the Cowboys up 42-7.
Eric Soza threw three TDs in the fourth quarter and finished 24 of 41 for 308 yards, with two interceptions.
Over 40,000 fans made this game the second highest attendence in UTSA history. The Roadrunners are in Arizona on Saturday, broadcast time is 730pm on Ticket 760.
Texas State dominates
SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) — Chris Nutall ran for two touchdowns and Texas State dominated the line of scrimmage and the clock in a 28-3 win over Prairie View A&M on Saturday night.
Nutall ran off right end for a 4-yard score in the first quarter and the Bobcats (2-0) never looked back. They amassed 242 yards rushing in their home-opener compared with 45 for the Panthers (1-1). Texas State also had the ball more than 16 minutes longer than Prairie View.
Nutall scored again in the second quarter on a 77-yard run to widen the lead to 21-0.
Robert Lowe scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter and Terrence Franks scored on an 8-yard run in the third for the Bobcats.
Prairie View had more yards passing than Texas State, 182 to 166, but couldn't find the end zone. The Panthers' only score came on a 47-yard field goal by Christopher Barrick.
