AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The Texas Longhorns passed the first test of their big rebuilding project. Now they get an even tougher one.

The BYU Cougars come to Austin on Saturday night looking for another big win on their barnstorming tour through college football's power conferences.

The Cougars opened their season by beating Mississippi on the road. A win over No. 24 Texas would make the rest of the country take note of a program playing its first season as a football independent.

The Longhorns are looking to build their fragile confidence after a season-opening win over Rice.
