Texas vs Baylor: The Right Texas vs Baylor Tickets For The Right Price With SeatGeek. The Texas Longhorns are back and are gearing up for their game against the Baylor Bears, who are quietly having a pretty solid season.The Texas Longhorns face the Baylor Bears on Saturday, Oct. 28 in college football Week 9, and here’s all the info you need to watch.
In spite of the national conversation surrounding them, the Texas Longhorns spent the week training and preparing the same way they have all year, hoping to get the same outcome.
Texas is experiencing its best start since its 2009 national championship run and can enter its bye week relatively healthy and on a high note with a win over the Baylor Bears (4-2, 2-1).
Quarterback Sam Ehlinger continues to elevate his play every week, and can further solidify himself as an elite Texas quarterback in the second half of the season. He’s racked up 1,499 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and more consecutive passes without an interception than any other quarterback in school history.
The Texas defense will face another potent offense this week, as quarterback Charlie Brewer is quietly having a productive season for the Bears. The sophomore signal caller is completing 64 percent of his passes to the tune of 1,558 yards and nine touchdowns. His two favorite targets, Denzel Mims and Jalen Hurd, have been on the receiving end of 999 yards of his passes, and in any other conference could easily be the best wideout duo.It’s time for the Tale of the Tape, an article where Horns247 takes a look at the Texas Longhorns and their opponent in a head-to-head breakdown to see which squad, on paper, looks better. This week, we’re taking a look at how the Longhorns (5-1, 3-0 in the Big 12) stack up against the Baylor Bears (4-2, 2-1) heading into a Big 12 contest at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday (2:30 p.m., ESPN).
Tom Herman (34-11 overall, 12-7 at Texas) will lead the Longhorns, ranked No. 9 in the latest Associated Press Top 25, onto the field looking to match the 2013 squad’s six-game winning streak as the longest for the program since winning 17 in a row between the 2008 and 2009 seasons. The Longhorns, fresh off of a 48-45 win over Oklahoma in the 113th edition of the AT&T Red River Showdown, have earned the program’s highest ranking in the AP Top 25 since 2010 and can keep themselves in the Big 12’s catbird seat along with No. 6 West Virginia with a win over the Bears.
Matt Rhule (33-36 overall, 5-13 at Baylor) went 1-11 in his first season on the Brazos as he tried to revive the program from the rubble that remained from the sexual assault scandal which ultimately cost Art Briles his job. After last week’s 37-34 win over Kansas State, Baylor is two wins away from bowl eligibility with six games remaining on the schedule.
