Taysom Hill should add to his impressive numbers when No. 25 BYU hosts Houston

Houston is already leery of Brigham Young's Taysom Hill.

The junior quarterback ran for three touchdowns last week and BYU shredded the Longhorns' defense 41-7, popping the Cougars into the AP rankings at No. 25. It was the worst Texas loss since 1997.

With the Longhorns taken care of, Hill and BYU (2-0) return home to host Houston (1-1) on Thursday night. Houston coach Tony Levine suggested that Hill is the very definition of a dual-threat quarterback.

Hill threw for 181 yards and ran for another 99, including the three scores, to embarrass Texas at home. He even hurdled a Longhorns defensive back to score on a 30-yard run for his first TD.

Hill has been named the FBS Independents player of the week after each of the season's first two weekends.
