Texas stymies Baylor in much-needed 27-16 win

Texas stymies Baylor in much-needed 27-16 win

American Statesman-USA TODAY Sports A slow start and a less-than-ideal finish bookended a performance that otherwise demonstrated some tangible improvement for a reeling program. With the Texas Longhorns wearing white uniforms at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium for the first time in over 70 years to celebrate the 110th meeting with the Baylor Bears, Saturday’s 27-16 victory looked like the type of win expected from a program that entered the game with a winning percentage of over 71 percent against its in-state opponent. It also came against an opponent that didn’t practice...

Post-game thoughts — Texas 27, Baylor 16

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports For the first time this season, Texas was in control of a conference game. Facing a Baylor Bears team that has been decimated by COVID-19 and several key injuries, the Texas Longhorns did what they needed to do to get back in the win column and took care of business at home today. OFFENSE Similar to each of the previous two games, the offense got off to a snail-paced start. At first, it was tough sledding on the ground and through the air. Texas had 25 total yards in the first quarter after two weeks of preparation against a depleted team. But thanks to...

Live Reaction: Texas holds off Baylor

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports The Longhorns had to overcome both a slow start and a late push from the Bears. The Texas Longhorns were unable to put the Baylor Bears away late, but managed to make just enough plays to come away with a 27-16 win in Austin. From here on out, Texas is fighting for its life in the Big 12 title hunt, so righting the ship with a win was needed. Watch our reaction live via Facebook Live. Longhorn Republic

Texas overcomes slow start, tops Baylor, 27-16: Post-game celebration thread

American Statesman-USA TODAY Sports The Longhorns overcame a slow start to score 27 unanswered points and get back into the win column for the first time in nearly a month. Following a scoreless first quarter, the Texas Longhorns offense finally began to string fairly consistent scoring drives together throughout the next two quarters, while Chris Ash’s defense put forth its most notable performance of Texas’ Big 12 slate thus far. Some stagnant offense and a Sam Ehlinger interception made things a bit more interesting than expected late, but nevertheless, Texas notched the win it...

Horns lead 13-3 at halftime, but Texas, Baylor are both getting their kicks

It’s halftime at Royal-Memorial Stadium. Texas is leading Baylor 13-3. That is not a typo. This was expected to be another Big 12 shootout for the Longhorns — Texas is an 8.5-point favorite and the over/under for total points in this game is 60.5 — but so far, this game is looking like it’s sticking […]

LIVE BLOG: Texas vs Baylor

On the heels of a bye week following a two-game losing skid, the Texas Longhorns (2-2, 1-2 in the Big 12) look to bounce back at DKR this afternoon against in-state foe Baylor (1-1, 1-1). The Bears haven’t played since Oct. 3 after a COVID outbreak forced Baylor to postpone a game with Oklahoma State  […]

Texas vs. Baylor: Game thread

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Another half of the season remains, but this is quite simply a must-win game for the Longhorns. The last time the Texas Longhorns welcomed a team to Austin, Tom Herman’s program was 2-0 and ranked No. 9 nationally. That showdown with TCU sparked what’s now become a two-game losing streak, dropping Texas to 2-2 overall and 1-2 in league action, and furthermore, ignited the fire beneath Herman’s seat. While all of Texas’ problems certainly can’t be fixed in a single afternoon, the Longhorns can — and quite frankly must — take a much-needed step...

How to watch Texas vs. Baylor: Game time, TV, live streaming, and more

Ricardo B. Brazziell-USA TODAY Sports The Horns look to bounce back after two straight losses. It’s fair to say that a 2-2 result for the Texas Longhorns in the first four games of the 2020 season is disappointing. In a year that featured a favorable schedule and a solid core of upperclassmen leaders, preseason talks were of conference championships and potentially playing in the College Football Playoffs. Now, Texas essentially faces a must-win game every week in order to keep any shot at a Big 12 championship game alive. The gauntlet starts Saturday at home against the Baylor...

BON Roundtable: Texas desperately needs bounce-back win vs. Baylor

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports If the Horns have any hopes of salvaging their season, they quite simply have to get back into the win column with Baylor coming to Austin. Big 12 play hasn’t been kind to the Texas Longhorns (2-2, 1-2). Tom Herman’s program is 1-2 in league action with the only win coming by way of a miraculous late comeback — and that was before Texas proceeded to lost to TCU, then lose to Oklahoma. Fortunately for Texas, the Big 12 appears to be on its way to a wide open race throughout the second half of the season, and with some much-needed improvements — and...

Our Daily Bears Q&A: Baylor needs to prove they can make big plays against Texas

Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports The Bears have wide receivers capable of making big plays, but can Charlie Brewer get them the football down the field? If the Texas Longhorns want to keep any hope alive at an outside shot at the Big 12 championship game, they need to win out. That journey starts this weekend with a home matchup against the Baylor Bears. Texas goes into the game favored, but that has been the case in three of the games they have played this season before struggling in all but the season opener against UTEP. The Longhorns have yet to play consistently this year, so they need to...

Once again, the Texas Longhorns must chase down Baylor in the race for the Big 12’s championship. The Big 12 revealed on Thursday that Texas is the second team listed in its preseason poll. As expected, Baylor grabbed the No. 1 spot in the rankings. The conference’s coaches are not allowed to pick for their own […]
