Perspective on the Texas defense’s performance against Baylor

It wasn’t good enough for the Texas Longhorns to come out with a victory against the Baylor Bears on Saturday, but the defense performed exceptionally well in limiting the explosive Bears offense.

Baylor entered the game ranked No. 1 nationally in scoring (56.8 points per game), first in total offense (641.0 ypg) and fourth in passing offense (401.3 ypg). On Saturday, the Texas defense held the Bears well below those averages — 389 yards of total offense and 111 passing yards.

The total yardage was 40% lower than the average coming into the game and the passing yardage less than 30% of the average over the first four games.
