Texas is finally having some second-half success, finding the end zone on their opening drive. A 15 play scoring drive, taking 6:11 off the clock is not something we are used to seeing from Steve Sarkisian’s offense.

Just a play after Bijan Robinson came up short on a swing pass, Sarkisian decided to go for it on fourth and goal. Defensive lineman Keondre Coburn and Byron Murphy came into the game as lead blockers, paving the way for Robinson to get his first touchdown of the day.

As a defender, seeing No. 99 and No. 90 charging at me would not be fun. Two of the biggest dudes in the conference are going to win one on one blocks with a running head start.

Now, we wait and see if Texas can sustain success in the second half. Getting Robinson involved after a rather uneventful first half was a good start. More of the Heisman caliber running back will lead to a win.

After Baylor responded with a touchdown, Texas leads 21-17 in the third quarter. You can watch the rest of the game on ABC.
