While no prospect was able to officially record a sub-4.5 second 40-yard dash, there was plenty of speed and athleticism on display alongside a few disappointments.

When Texas traveled to Provo to face Brigham Young in the second week of the college football season, few expected the embarrassing upset that Brigham Young would inflict.

Last season, the Bills featured two sons of former NFL players, Jairus Byrd and Lee Smith.
