As it turned out, Texas didn't need to find a miracle cure for what has been a historically terrible defense. Instead, it simply had to outplay one that was even worse. [San Antonio Express-News]

607 yards. Yes, you read that correctly. [Yahoo Sports]

Defensive back Kevin Vaccaro, one of the leaders on the Longhorns, called the lack of intensity a "cancer" after last week's Sooner thrashing. He accused some teammates of not playing hard. Saturday, after a win, he sighed audibly when informed his defense gave up 607 yards to the RG3-less Bears.

Whither the Texas defense. Texas allowed 607 yards and 50 points and kind of felt good about itself. That shows just how bad things have gone this season. Yes, the Longhorns got a win. At the same time, some weird play calling and Baylor field goals let Texas off the hook. The defense has to improve dramatically for Texas to have a chance at wins in Lubbock and Manhattan.
