Two teams from the BIG 12 will be facing off when the Texas Longhorns visit the Baylor Bears.
Both of these teams are coming off of bye weeks in week 8.
This line started off with the Bears laying 2.5 points and that number is up to 3. The total has gone from 59.5 to 61.5.
Texas has been an inconsistent football team in 2021. One minute they are playing very well and the next they look terrible. You never truly know what to expect from them.
The last game this team played was on October 16th when they lost to Oklahoma State 32-24. This was a game they should have won, but they could not hold the lead they had.
In the loss to the Cowboys, Casey Thompson was 15/27 for 179 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions. He will need to be much cleaner if his team is going to beat the Bears.
Against Oklahoma State, running back Bijan Robinson had another big day. He ran the ball 21 times for 135 yards. I am sure he will get lots of touches against Baylor.
The defense is still not that great for this squad. I do not have much confidence that they can slow down the offense for the Bears.
Baylor may not be getting a lot of attention, but they have been very good this year. This team is ranked #16 in the nation.
The Bears last played on October 16th against BYU where they won 38-24.
In the victory two weeks ago, Gary Bohanon was 18/28 for 231 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. I feel he will have a good day against a defense for Texas that is not all that good.
Against the Cougars, running back Abram Smith had 27 carries for 188 yards and 3 touchdowns. The leading receiver was Tyquan Thorton who had 5 receptions for 84 yards.
Overall, the defense for this program has been pretty good. If they can generate a lot of pressure on Casey Thompson, I think they will win this ball game. Another key will be stopping the explosive running back, Bijan Robinson.

Baylor is the better team and I think they will win the game.
With that said, I do not just think that they will coast to a victory on Saturday. Texas is a legitimate opponent and I have a hard time seeing them get blown out.
Both of these offenses are very good and I expect there to be a good amount of points scored in this one. I feel this is the type of game that the team with the ball last, will win the game.
My play is on Texas getting 3 points here.
