Baylor vs. Texas 2012 preview: Longhorns and Bears look to get back on track

The Texas Longhorns and Baylor Bears have both lost two games in a row, as promising seasons have led to disappointment. They face off this Saturday in Austin.

The Texas Longhorns head back to Austin this Saturday to take on the Baylor Bears in a matchup between two teams that find themselves -- unexpectedly -- at the bottom of the Big 12 standings.

The Baylor Bears have lost twice in a row to Big 12 foes, dropping an explosive shootout against West Virginia and then getting blown out against TCU in Waco. The Bears have allowed 119 points combined in those losses -- though they were against two of the NCAA's most dangerous offenses -- and face another potentially tough test against a high-scoring Texas offense.

Meanwhile, the Longhorns look to rebound after two losses in a row of their own. A tough loss to West Virginia on Oct. 6 was followed up by a blowout debacle in the Red River Shootout against Oklahoma, with the Longhorns defense seemingly unable to stop the Sooners in the 63-21 loss.

The Longhorns will hope to have David Ash on Saturday, who suffered an injured wrist near the end of the Oklahoma game, but had full participation during practice on Sunday.

The Baylor Bears face the Texas Longhorns on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. CT, with coverage on ABC.
