One of the challenges of playing a solid BYU team in Provo, Utah is that the game is up in Provo, Utah. The game will be played 4,600 feet above sea level.
The Horns actually implemented oxygen masks over the summer to help simulate the thin air.
This week the Horns worked to stay hydrated and rested, which is so important considering BYU runs an up-tempo offense even faster than UT's.
"They're (BYU) snapping the ball 10-15 seconds every time, regardless, and they're not substituting at all, so the bunch that you put out there with a drive is probably going to have to stay unless you use one of your timeouts," UT Head Football Coach Mack Brown said. "And then we feel like because of the altitude, the long flight - it's about a two hour and 45 minute flight - we'll work out some out there Friday when we get there."
