Two years ago, Jones linebacker Taylor Bilyeu was crushed when a broken ankle cut his season short. Bilyeu is still, two years later, trying to make up for missing those games.

And lately, Taylor has benefitted from Cornwell's chemistry with his receivers, most notably Randall Case.
Bilyeu is confident Jones' improvements will lead to a different outcome from the first time the Longhorns met Blanchard earlier in the season. Blanchard won that game 28-25.
“The biggest thing in that game was the turnovers,” he said. “If we keep those down and play the way we've been coached, we'll be fine.”
It will be the second rematch for Jones this season.
The Longhorns fell to Perkins in the season opener, 18-15, but blew out the Demons 48-12 in the opening round of the playoffs.
“We learned a lot from that,” Bilyeu said. “We learned tendencies and little flaws that we can pick up on easier the second time.
“It's the same way this week.”
