Horns defense bludgeons Bears, 38-7

Today the Texas defense shut down the Baylor offense regardless of who was leading it. The UT offense, led by sophomore QB Shane Buechele, was able to put up 31 points on their own to support the defense. Junior and Thorpe Award semi-finalist DeShon Elliott added six points on his own on an interception, and Texas cruised past Baylor in Waco, 38-7.
