No. 16 Baylor can solidify its place as a Big 12 title contender with a win over Texas that would also bury the Longhorns’ hopes to climb back in the race. The Bears have a powerful run game behind backs Abram Smith and Tristan Ebner. Texas has surrendered huge chunks of run yardage in their three losses and have given up fourth-quarter leads in consecutive losses. Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon has thrown 12 touchdown passes against one interception. Texas running back Bijan Robinson leads the Big 12 with 13 touchdowns.
