Texas vs. Baylor Odds: Longhorns favored by two scores

Mack Brown has made a career in Austin out of rebounding from blowout losses to OU, which may be one reason why Texas is favored by -11 points over Baylor after their 63-21 drubbing at the hands of the Sooners last Saturday.

Despite injuring his wrist, David Ash is expected to be under center for Texas. In 2011, with Ash ineffective, the Longhorns had to turn to Case McCoy, who couldn't keep up with RG3 as the Bears romped to a 48-24 victory in Waco.

However, RG3 is gone, and while the Bears program is much improved under Art Briles, their 49-21 home loss to TCU last Saturday showed how much further they still have to go to ensure their place in the middle-tier of Big 12 schools.

Nick Florence threw 4 INT's in his worst performance as a starter, but he's likely licking his chops to play a Texas defense that couldn't tackle, cover or really do much of anything against OU.

The odds-makers expect another of the shootouts that the conference has become known for on Saturday, as the over/under for the game has been set at 80.5.
