AUSTIN (KXAN) — It sounds like a broken record. Texas is 3-4 for the third straight year under head coach Charlie Strong. Bowl chances are up in the air with Baylor coming to Austin this weekend.

While Texas’ record is what it is, the glimmer of hope is how the Horns have fared at home.

“With us being at home, I expect us to play pretty well. There’s no reason for us not to. I told (the team)…you have five games left and you want to end up with a good year. You have a chance to end up with a good year. Don’t look down the road. Let’s look at what’s in front of us,” Strong said.

Texas is 3-0 at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium with a point differential in favor the Longhorns at 118 to 60. The competition hasn’t been the stiffest, but that will change Saturday against Baylor.

The 6th ranked team in the country, Baylor’s offense is again clicking at a high rate. The Bears are balanced, but are led by the running game– currently the seventh best rushing attack in the country.
