The Baylor Bears, who nearly pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the 2008 season last week, will get another chance to slay a giant today. The Bears are in Austin, Texas for a showdown with Big 12 South rival, the Texas Longhorns. The game is set to kick off at 12:00pm ET. College football betting odds at SBGglobal.com have Texas listed as a -28 home favorite.
Baylor was able to take high scoring Missouri to the wire last week in Waco thanks largely to some careless ball security on the part of the Tigers. But the Bears have some ability as well, especially at the quarterback position where true freshman Robert Griffin has shined all season.
Head Coach Art Briles has his team posting over 27 points per game this year and averaging 183.3 yards per game on the ground.
The Texas Longhorns saw their hopes for an undefeated season end last week in Lubbock, but they still have a chance at a BCS Championship if they catch some breaks. Of course, they have to take care of business on their end, and that means not taking Baylor lightly. The BEars effort against Missouri was probably more than enough to get Texas' attention.
