The Longhorns dominated a respectable Bear offense and held Baylor to their season lows in points (7) and yardage (249). The defense continues to excel on 3rd and 4th down holding the Bears to 1/9 conversions in the first half and 5/23 total for the game. It’s hard to win with a 21.7% conversion rate if you’re not hitting big plays. Baylor had just one of those: a 52 yard Blake Lynch sideline catch from Charlie Brewer on a nice call after a dumb penalty gave them a little field position courage.
And that’s what led to their 7 points. They spent the rest of the game punting and turning it over.
