Huge Baylor Second Half Overwhelms Texas 28-7

After leading just 7-0 at the break, Baylor wore down and eventually overwhelmed Texas in the second half, rushing for nearly 200 yards after halftime.

Ronald Martinez

Though this game won't be going on any of Bryce Petty's highlight videos (he was 7/22 for 111 yards and 2 TDs) submitted to the NFL, Baylor eventually managed to pound Texas into submission in the second half with nearly 200 rushing yards after halftime, including 19 on a game-changing fake punt by Spencer Roth that set up Baylor's first offensive touchdown of the day.  For the defense, only an extremely weak, inexplicable pass interference penalty against Xavien Howard late in the game cost Baylor the first home shutout of the Longhorns since 1976.  Otherwise, theirs was a virtuoso performance against an overmatched Texas offense that simply could not keep up when the Bears finally got going.

After three consecutive road wins, Baylor is now 5-0 for the second year in a row.  Oh, and we've won 4 of the last 5 games against Texas.  The clock struck 0:00 in Austin with Baylor fans chanting "Let's go Baylor" loud enough to be heard distinctly on the broadcast.  Yeah, we're still Baylor, all right.

Players of the Game:

Offense: Shock Linwood -- 28 carries, 148 yards, 1 TD (should have been two)
Defense: Aiavion Edwards, Xavien Howard, Orion Stewart (2 INTs) (will update stats when available)
Special Teams: Spencer Roth (the best fake punt ever)
