Texas Longhorns Week 13 Opponent Preview: Baylor Bears

The Longhorns seek revenge in their final regular season matchup against the Baylor Bears.

There are going to be major Big 12 title implications on the line Saturday in Austin when the Baylor Bears come to Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to take on the Texas Longhorns. 

Win, and the Longhorns are just a Kansas State loss away from making it to Arlington. 

Lose, and the Longhorns' hopes are dashed. 

Coming to Austin will be a Baylor team that is coming off of a heartbreaking loss to the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday, in which they blew a late lead, and their own Big 12 title chances. 

What type of team will Baylor bring to Austin? Will it be a motivated team looking for an upset? Or will it be a defeated team already resigned to their mediocre bowl fate?

Be sure to stick with as we preview every aspect of the matchup with the Bears throughout the week.
