(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.


Jamaal Williams had a career-high 182 yards and Paul Lasike added 87 along with a score.


David Ash threw two TD passes to Mike Davis and Joe Bergeron had a short TD.
