Immediately following the emotional win over the Oklahoma Sooners, Texas Longhorns players and coaches refused to address whether or not “Texas is back.” But one thing is for certain — the Longhorns have returned to the national spotlight.

Texas jumped ten spots in the Associated Press polls to No. 9 and if they win out, will play in their first Big 12 title game since 2009. But first, they will have to take on the Baylor Bears Saturday in Austin.

The Longhorns have won three-straight and four of the last six against the Bears, but coming off of a big emotional win the team must avoid a letdown at home.

Texas head coach Tom Herman is set to address the media Monday for his weekly press conference.
