LIVE BLOG: Texas vs Baylor

Posted October 24th, 2020


On the heels of a bye week following a two-game losing skid, the Texas Longhorns (2-2, 1-2 in the Big 12) look to bounce back at DKR this afternoon against in-state foe Baylor (1-1, 1-1). The Bears haven’t played since Oct. 3 after a COVID outbreak forced Baylor to postpone a game with Oklahoma State  to Dec. 12. Baylor lost its last game out, 27-21 in double overtime at WVU. For live updates, photos and analysis from the American-Statesman’s Brian Davis, Danny Davis, Kirk Bohls and Cedric Golden, checkout our live blog:
