The #8 Baylor Bears are travelling to Austin to take on the Texas Longhorns in this Lone Star State showdown. Baylor is undefeated and alone atop the Big 12.
Texas has been up and down this year, but mostly down. The Longhorns lead the all-time series 76-25-4 including a 23-17 win at Baylor last year.
The Bears came into the season surrounded by controversy, but they have managed to quiet the noise and dominate the conference.
They are coming off a bye last week and a dominating 49-7 win over Kansas the week before. Texas came into the season with a coach on the hot-seat, and it’s only gotten hotter.
They are coming off a very disappointing 24-21 loss at Kansas State in a game they had no business losing.
The #8 Baylor Bears have crept further up the standings every week.
They have not faced a very tough schedule thus far, but one cannot blame them for winning the games on their schedule.
They had a bye last week, and may as well have had one the week before when they destroyed Kansas and led 42-0 at halftime.
Baylor has had a consistently great offense over the last five seasons, and this year is no different.
They are currently 7th in the nation in rushing with 282.3 yards per game.
The Bears passing offense is 36th with 266.3 yards per game. What is more impressive than the yards is the points. They are 10th in the country in scoring offense (43.7) and 11th in scoring defense (17.2).
Sports writers around the nation nearly wet themselves with excitement in Week 1 when Texas beat Notre Dame, and it looked as though the Longhorns might be relevant again.
Texas went from unranked to 11th, but instead of showing how good Texas was, it only showed how overrated Notre Dame was.
The Longhorns have since lost four of their last five, with the only win coming at home against Iowa State.
Charlie Strong’s team continues to confuse fans and experts alike.
He was hired for his defensive prowess, but their offense has been the only bright spot. They are 29th in the nation in rushing with 222.1 yards per game.
Freshman quarterback Shane Buechele has continued to impress with 1,722 yards along with 15 touchdowns to only five interceptions. Unfortunately, the defense allows 32.6 points per game which is 98th in the nation.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
The Baylor offense has surprised no one with it’s high-powered attack. The defense is what has really been impressive. However, they have yet to face a team like Texas with a well-balanced attack.
This one will probably be a race to 40.
