Both the Texas Longhorns and the Baylor Bears are looking to avoid letting one loss beat them twice. A week ago against the Oklahoma Sooners, Baylor gave up a 28-3 lead to dash their hopes at an undefeated season. The Longhorns came out and struggled against the Iowa State Cyclones and had a shot to win it, but gave up a walk-off field goal to give Matt Campbell his first win over the Longhorns since becoming the head coach.

Baylor is helmed by junior signal caller Charlie Brewer, who has passed for more than 2,500 yards and 18 touchdowns, while adding nine scores with his feet. His favorite target, Denzel Mims, has dealt with injuries this year, but has still racked up more than 700 yards and 10 of the Bears’ 19 receiving touchdowns.

The Longhorns seem to have found their footing defensively after struggling with injuries, but now the offense sputtered in the past few weeks. Against the Cyclones, Texas was unable to establish the run and it cost them, but they could potentially find success this weekend, as Baylor is giving up 146 yards per game on the ground through conference play.

Baylor’s “pop” often stems from long passes set up by an RPO, play-action, or a simple drop out of the Bears’ four-wide sets.

If the Texas staff wants to win against Baylor and Texas Tech, they need to be aware of this fact and use the running backs to limit some of the pressure on Ehlinger, despite their early belief that the run game is not working. They may just surprise themselves.

In order to limit the wear and tear on their quarterback, and set him up for success in the passing game, the Longhorns are going to need to find a way to create room for their running backs and use them consistently.
