Texas blitzing Baylor on offense, defense
By David Ubben
WACO, Texas -- Texas is cruising to a 37-0 lead after Cody Johnson's 1-yard scoring plunge and a safety.
But the game is turning into a penalty-fest as the Bears have been flagged five times for 47 yards on the last two drives.
It helped this game turn ugly, but can't negate what Texas has done.
The Longhorns have scored five touchdowns on seven first-half possessions. And the Longhorns punctuated their first half performance when Terrance Ganaway's fumble was recovered by Baylor tight end Justin Akers for a safety.
It could have been worse. Texas cornerback Chykie Brown whiffed on a chance to recover the fumble in the end zone for a touchdown.
The only question now will be how long Colt McCoy will play into the second half?
