Texas’ final tuneup for the Big 12 poses a challenge: Bears quarterback Jared Goff (3,973, 35/7), who orchestrated the nation’s No. 11 scoring offense in 2014. Cal hit 45 points five times. By this third game, with Big 12 play one week away, Texas will want its quarterback situation settled. Over the past 10 years, Texas is 25-5 in the first three games — but four of those five losses have come in the past two seasons.
All-time: Texas, 5-0; Last time: Texas, 21-10 (2011 Holiday Bowl)
