BYU Football Releases Depth Chart For Texas Week

Oct 23, 2023, 2:59 PM | Updated: 3:18 pm

PROVO, Utah – The latest BYU football depth chart is out as the Cougars gear up to take on No. 7 Texas in Austin.

It will be BYU’s toughest test this season, but it also provides a significant opportunity to be a spoiler in the Big 12 Championship race.

BYU and Texas will square off for the sixth all-time meeting. Texas has only won once in the previous five matchups. BYU is currently on a two-game win streak against the Longhorns from two victories in 2013 and 2014.

This week’s BYU football depth chart is the same as last week’s leading up to the Texas Tech game.

The lack of changes to this week’s depth chart could be to counter Texas’ move not to release a weekly depth chart.

BYU does have some availability questions with wide receiver Keanu Hill, defensive tackle John Nelson, and cornerback Marcus McKenzie. All three players are listed on the depth chart heading into the game against Texas.
