The Bears are healthy, rested and ready to take some long-standing frustration out on "big brother" in Texas.  A team that beat them last year when they had zero quarterbacks. A team that some might say "stole" signees from them.  A program and fan base that threw gasoline on the smoldering fire that was the Baylor program this summer and took full advantage of every break.  The players know it. The coaches know it, and the fans certainly know it.  Baylor was 1 minute away from defeated Texas without a quarterback last year. This time, Seth Russell is healthy and the Bears have a full complement of skill players ready to go.  

The Texas defense is one of the worst pass defenses the Bears will see, so a big game from Russell and company is long overdue.  The Longhorns will be able to run the ball at times against the Bears front-7, especially with Bravvion Roy out of the game.  The Longhorn passing attack won't be able to get the big plays that have sparked most of their scoring drives.

This is a hard game to predict. One thing is for sure, there will be a TON of emotion in this game. Baylor is the better team. By how much? Who knows, but the Bears have the experience and more playmakers. The difference will be stops. Who can make the one extra stop. I think Baylor can and will. Bears win in a close one.
