Texas @ Baylor

Current Records: Texas 18-6; Baylor 20-4

What to Know

The #10 Baylor Bears are 10-2 against the #20 Texas Longhorns since February of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. Baylor and the Longhorns will face off in a Big 12 battle at noon ET at Ferrell Center. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

Baylor had enough points to win and then some against the Kansas State Wildcats on Wednesday, taking their contest 75-60. Among those leading the charge for Baylor was forward Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua, who had 21 points along with six rebounds.

Meanwhile, it was a close one, but on Monday Texas sidestepped the Kansas Jayhawks for a 79-76 victory. Texas can attribute much of their success to forward Timmy Allen, who had 24 points in addition to nine boards.

The Bears are expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Oklahoma State Cowboys Jan. 15 easily too and instead slipped up with a 61-54. In other words, don’t count the Longhorns out just yet.
