Texas-Baylor Kickoff Time Set for 11 A.M. CT

Texas' matchup with Baylor on Oct. 30 marks the fifth-straight 11 a.m. kickoff for the burnt orange this season

The kickoff time for the 111th meeting between the Texas Longhorns (4-3) and Baylor Bears (6-1) has been set, as the two teams will kick-off on ABC at 11 a.m. C.T. on Saturday, Oct. 30 in Waco, Texas.

There's just something about 11 a.m. kickoffs and the Longhorns this season. The matchup with Baylor will be Texas' fifth-straight morning start so far in the 2021 campaign.

The Longhorns head into this game after a disappointing 32-24 loss at home on Saturday to the Oklahoma State Cowboys (6-0), who have risen to the No. 8 spot in the country in the latest AP top-25. 

For Baylor, it's been a widely successful season up to this point, as head coach Dave Aranda has led the Bears to No. 20 in the nation after an upset win over the former 19th-ranked BYU Cougars at home on Saturday.

The victory marked Baylor's second ranked win of the season after beating Iowa State on Sep. 25. The Cyclones were ranked No. 14 in that game but fell 31-29 to the unranked Bears.
