The No. 3 Texas Longhorns take an early season undefeated record into Waco on Saturday to face the Baylor Bears for the final time as members of the Big 12 Conference. The game, which will be played at McLane Stadium, will serve as the 113th meeting between the two schools, dating back to 1902.
Baylor started the season with loss at home to Texas State, followed by a home loss to the Utah Utes. Dave Aranda’s team earned their first victory of the season last week, also at home, after posting a 30-7 win over Long Island. The Bears have won six straight conference openers datiung back to 2017, but they will have their hands full against a talented Texas team that boasts its highest ranking since 2009 – when they played in the BCS Championship game.
Texas sputtered out of the gate against Rice in the team’s season opener but defeated the Owls in Austin 37-10. The ‘Horns then jumped in the polls after winning their second contest of the season against the Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa. Last weekend took a strong fourth quarter for the Longhorns to pull away from the Wyoming Cowboys in Austin, but they did and maintained a perfect record through three nonconference bouts.
