HALFTIME: TEXAS 3, BAYLOR 7

Analysis: Very surprising that there has been very little scoring in this first half. There haven't been any turnovers aside from the Baylor fumble on the opening drive. The pair of defenses just came to play. Field position has played a huge role in this first half. Baylor has pinned Texas inside the five three times in the first half. The 68-yard run by Keaontay Ingram on the final drive was a huge momentum shift in Texas ' favor. Perhaps that will help them start out strong in the second half.

PREGAME:

After losing a tight 23-21 game to Iowa State, the Texas Longhorns face a tougher test on the road against the No. 14 Baylor Bears.

Baylor is 9-1 on the season thus far, with its lone loss coming at the hands of Oklahoma, where the Sooners completed a 24-point second half comeback. 

Texas needs to win this game in order to stay in contention for the Big 12 Championship game. A lot more needs to happen, too. However, the Longhorns have to obviously take care of their own business first. For the scenario that gets Texas in the Big 12 Championship, click here.  

The longshot to the Big 12 title game has not kept the Longhorns' spirits down for the rest of the season, though. Tom Herman told the media in Monday's press conference that his players are still motivated. 

"It’s not harder than what you guys may think. These guys are competitors and losing is embarrassing. Nobody wants to lose. You appeal to every fiber of competitiveness that they have in them," Herman said.
