The Baylor Bears have won their last four games, including a wild win over the Oklahoma Sooners, and will look to knock off Texas in back to back years for the first time since the 1991-92 seasons. Led by Heisman Candidate quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Bears have had an explosive offense all season long, scoring 43 points per game. Griffin's Heisman chances got a big boost thanks to his play against the Sooners and a big game against the Longhorns can only help that campaign. The Bears defense however has been their downfall, giving up nearly 37 points per game.
The Texas Longhorns are coming off a victory against the Texas A&M Aggies that could be their final match up until the chance of meeting in post season play, with the Aggies joining the SEC. The Longhorns know how dangerous Griffin III can be, as he was a big reason the Longhorns fell to the Bears in 2010, scoring three touchdowns. "We don't plan on letting anyone win the Heisman against us," Texas linebacker Emmanuel Acho told reporters on Monday. The Longhorns were crushed by the Oklahoma Sooners earlier in the season, giving up 55 points, but their defense has buckled down since that match up. They'll need to play their best to slow down Griffin III and the Bears explosive offense.
