The wheels have fallen off for Texas (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) as a 31-24 loss to Baylor this past Saturday marked their third consecutive defeat. The Longhorns were stonewalled by the Bears offensively as presumptive Heisman Trophy hopeful Bijan Robinson was held to just 43 yards off 17 carries.
Iowa State (5-3, 3-2 Big 12) will try to stay in the mix for the Big 12 Championship game after falling 38-31 to West Virginia on Saturday. They did get a solid performance out of Breece Hall, who ran the ball 24 times for 167 yards and a touchdown.
