Why Texas can cover

Texas reentered the college football playoff rankings earlier this week after dominating Kansas last week with a 55-14 away win, which was its second win in the last three games. Star running back Bijan Robinson rushed for a career-high 243 yards and four touchdowns in just three quarters of the action while the Longhorns finished with 539 total yards. They are the only team with four losses in the top 25 as their four losses add up to 18 points.

The Longhorns have not lost a home game to Baylor since 2014 and hold an all-time record of 48-10-2 in Austin games. Baylor is no longer living for a spot in the conference championship game, giving Texas extra motivation Friday afternoon. The Longhorns have covered the spread in eight of their last 12 games and the Bears face a ranked opponent for the third straight week.

Why Baylor can cover

Baylor has lost two games, but last week he nearly pulled off an upset against the TCU No. 4. The Bears led 28-20 in the fourth quarter and led by two points after time was up, but TCU drilled a 40-yard field goal over time to remain undefeated. Baylor had 232 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns for an average of 5.0 yards per carry.

Freshman running back Richard Reese has 908 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns this season, while junior running back Craig Williams has added 530 yards and four scores. Sophomore quarterback Blake Shapen has thrown for 2,423 yards and 14 points, giving Baylor a balanced offense. The Bears have covered the span in four of their last five games this season, and they’ve clipped 10-4-1 in their last 15 games against Texas.
