Baylor Vs. Texas Halftime Score: Bears Lead Longhorns 24-21

The Texas Longhorns offense which has struggled all year showed up Saturday afternoon against the Baylor Bears by putting up 21 first half points. Baylor got up early 14-0 on a 59-yard touchdown pass from Robert Griffin III to Kendal Wright and the other was a touchdown run for 20 yards by Terrance Ganaway. Texas responded with a Case McCoy 2-yard touchdown pass to Blaine Irby. That touchdown was the start of Texas scoring 21 straight points to take the lead 21-14.

With Texas up leading by seven Baylor made their own 10 unanswered point run to take the lead by kicking a 22-yard field goal and Griffin scored his second touchdown of the half on a 2-yard rush. Those last 10 points gave Baylor a 24-21 lead over Texas at the half.

All three first half touchdowns came on the arm of McCoy for Texas, and his having one of his best games of his career with 232 yards, three touchdowns and only one pick. McCoy is out dueling Griffin who is 5-for-10 for 132 yards in the air with a score and only eight yards on the ground and one rushing touchdown.
