The Longhorns are looking to end their two-game losing streak, as they take on No. 16 Baylor in Week 9.
Contrary to what they have done when they have won the toss earlier in the season, Texas opted to kick first rather than start off with the offense.
Going into the game, Texas knew that they needed to stop the run, but more importantly prevent Gerry Bohanon from getting hot and beating them in the air.
After a nice completion on their first play of the game, Bohanon made a risky decision when he threw into coverage with four Longhorns around. The throw ended with Texas defensive back B.J. Foster running the ball back, as he grabbed his third interception of the season.
This was a critical play as Bohanon is typically very smart with the ball, and that is only his second interception on the season. Foster gave the Longhorns the ball in premium field position, and a chance to take an early lead. Unfortunately, the lead was short-lived.
Texas and Baylor are now tied 7-7 with four minutes to go in the first quarter.
