TV Schedule: Saturday, Dec. 5, 11:00 a.m. ET, ESPN3/ESPN
Stadium: McLane Stadium
Line: Baylor (-20.5)
Texas hasn’t exactly had a successful season, as it has seven losses on the year. In Texas, that is not quite meeting expectations, and it will be interesting to see how long the program sticks with Charlie Strong if these kinds of performances go down on a yearly basis.
As for the Bears, they put in a disappointing season as well … yet they only had two losses. Baylor was expected to compete for a spot in the College Football Playoff in 2015. Unfortunately, QB Seth Russell was lost to an injury, and that has been devastating to the offense — which is what the Bears are all about.
Given the fact that the Longhorns only have four wins, don’t expect them to partake in bowl season this year. Playing a team like Baylor, who has weapons like Corey Coleman (aka the best WR in the country), doesn’t help Texas’ cause.
Although many fans were hoping Baylor would enter this game with a flashy, perfect record, this program can still make a solid bowl with a victory — which is the only thing folks should expect in this Big 12 clash.
Just to make things interesting: Texas did hand the Oklahoma Sooners their only loss of 2015.
PREDICTION: Longhorns 17, Bears 45
