The Longhorns notched a season-high nine sacks and had two tailbacks run for more than 100 yards in their lopsided win over Texas Tech last Thursday. They need to have do more of the same to beat Baylor on Saturday.
Jackson Jeffcoat had a career-high three sacks last week against Texas Tech and will be looking to build off that performance going into this week's regular season finale against Baylor, as will fellow seniors Mike Davis and Anthony Fera.
Rather reluctantly, Texas will be pulling for its biggest rival, Oklahoma, because it needs the Sooners to beat Oklahoma State so the Longhorns can win the Big 12 outright with a win over Baylor this Saturday.
Bryce Petty and Lache Seastrunk are the leaders of an offense that has scored more points and gained more yards than any other in the country but Bryce Hager is the main man in the Bears' formidable offense.
In what he calls one of his roughest seasons, Mack Brown may have done one of the best coaching jobs of his career, getting Texas back into Big 12 title contention despite losing two of the first three games of the year.
