Texas Longhorns vs. Baylor Bears Preview
The Longhorns got off to a slow start this season, and they just haven’t been able to keep up any sort of momentum. After several crushing loses to Notre Dame, TCU and Iowa State, the Longhorns are ranked 7th in the Big 12 with a conference record of 3-5 and an overall record of 4-7. Fans hope that Texas can pull off a win against the high-ranked Baylor Bears to boost their ranking as the season winds down.
Baylor, on the other hand, got off to a flying start, winning 8 straight games to kick off a dominant season. After loss in double overtime to TCU last Friday, the Bears dropped to #4 in the Big 12, with a conference record of 6-2 and an overall record of 9-2.
