We have reached week nine of the college football season and by this point most teams will be playing conference games in this week.
In this game it’s a an all Texas and a Big 12 showdown at McLane Stadium.
The Texas Longhorns make the trip to Waco to take on the Baylor Bears. The Longhorns have won the last two games between the two teams.
The first season under Tom Herman for the Texas Longhorns has been a disappointment so far this year. They come into this game with a 3-4 record and if they want any chance to make a bowl game this is a must win.
They will probably only be favored in one of the games they have left, so they will also need to find a way to get an upset.
In the last two games the Longhorns have played Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and although they were able to keep it close and cover the spread, they haven’t been able to close out close games.
That has been a problem the last couple of years for the Longhorns and with as big of program as the Longhorns is, moral victories just don’t cut it.
To win this game the offense is going to need to get rolling. As bad as the Baylor Bears have been, most nights they can score at a decent clip.
If the Longhorns want to win they need to get good quarterback play.
On the other side of this match up is the Baylor Bears who have had a terrible season, but come into this game off a loss that they almost won.
In their last game against the West Virginia Mountaineers they scored a touchdown with under a minute left to bring the game within two.
The Bears couldn’t convert on the two point conversion though, and they once again fell short.
The biggest issue the Bears have had has been on the defensive side of the ball. They come into this game giving up 39.7 points per game which is one of the worst in all the country.
To win this game and pull the upset the Baylor Bears need to have a few things go right. First off they need to get out to a fast start.
They won’t win this game if they are playing from behind, so the offense needs to get rolling early. They also need to figure out a way to close out the game.
They have had some close games but haven’t been able to make the big plays down the stretch.
