Texas has kept the No. 1 offense in the nation scoreless handing Baylor its largest deficit of the season.

Even with the loss of Malik Jefferson, Dylan Haines, Peter Jinkens and Dylan Haines, Texas is giving fans an incredible defensive performance. So far, Texas forced three turnovers including two interceptions by Duke Thomas and Jason Hall.

Baylor’s closest attempts to getting points on the board were two field goal attempts. The first attempt was a 40-yarder with five minutes left in the second quarter.

Missed.

The second attempt was a 54-yarder with 11 seconds left in the half.

Missed.

To be fair, Baylor is currently on their fourth-string quarterback with Lynx Hawthorne.

Regardless, Texas is clearly trying to make a statement.
