Why Baylor will win
The combination of a balanced offense and decent enough running defense might be enough to make that happen.
The Bears may have faltered in the 31-3 loss to Kansas State, but they came back to edge TCU in last week’s insane 29-28 loss on a walk-off field goal bring to. Still, the O continues to be great on third downs to keep things moving.
Baylor is great at dominating the clock – he did that against TCU and has held the ball for over 32 minutes. Texas doesn’t care about the time of the possession battle and is likely to lose by well over five minutes.
And then there’s the running defense. Texas is 4-0 when they rush for 205 yards and 3-4 when they don’t. More specifically, the three victories when the running game wasn’t rocking came against teams that didn’t go bowling.
Baylor has only allowed 205+ rushing yards twice so far, but…

Why Texas will win
Yeah, that Bijan Robinson guy is pretty good.
He was stuffed by TCU for 29 yards and came back roaring for 243 yards and four points in what seemed like minutes in last week’s blowout win over Kansas. That was his second 200-yard game in his last three and his eighth for 100-yard rushing in his last nine.
Baylor’s defense was amazing against the run in the first half of the season, but there were a few problems in the Big 12’s game that allowed more than four yards per carry in each of the last four games. It’s also 2-4 this season if you’re giving up more than three yards per streak.
Alabama and TCU. These are the only two teams that can keep Texas under three yards per carry.

What will happen
Texas will play Kansas State in the Big 12 Championship with a win-loss against Kansas. It takes care of the first part itself.
Baylor will be dangerous again but will struggle defensively as Longhorn’s passing is enough to level the attack – the Bear D will be sold out to stop Robinson.
Baylor is 1-5 if he concedes more than 24 points. Texas was held under-24 by — again — Alabama and TCU.
