Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian came away from Week 10 with an impressive 35-6 win over head coach Kalani Sitake and the BYU Cougars. In the lone meeting between Texas and BYU as conference foes, the men in Burnt Orange got the job done with a complete performance this weekend.

The win over BYU moves Texas to 7-1 (4-1 Big 12) heading into the final month of the regular season. The Longhorns are in a good spot heading into the stretch run this fall, well within striking distance of a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game and a berth in the College Football Playoff.
