In spite of the national conversation surrounding them, the Texas Longhorns spent the week training and preparing the same way they have all year, hoping to get the same outcome.

Texas is experiencing its best start since its 2009 national championship run and can enter its bye week relatively healthy and on a high note with a win over the Baylor Bears (4-2, 2-1).

Quarterback Sam Ehlinger continues to elevate his play every week, and can further solidify himself as an elite Texas quarterback in the second half of the season. He’s racked up 1,499 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and more consecutive passes without an interception than any other quarterback in school history.

The Texas defense will face another potent offense this week, as quarterback Charlie Brewer is quietly having a productive season for the Bears. The sophomore signal caller is completing 64 percent of his passes to the tune of 1,558 yards and nine touchdowns. His two favorite targets, Denzel Mims and Jalen Hurd, have been on the receiving end of 999 yards of his passes, and in any other conference could easily be the best wideout duo.

For this current Texas team, at 5-1, to even reach the program’s 11-win average throughout the noted 10-year span when Texas was the Texas many ask if it’s finally back to being, it will have to remain perfect between now and Nov. 23’s regular-season finale meeting with Kansas.

Even with the high expectations I had, I would say their level of play since the Maryland loss has been way above even what I was hoping for.
