Texas Longhorns Football 2006 Game 7 Highlights - Baylor

After last week's big game in Dallas, Coach Brown asked his team to play like it's the first game of the season... and in many ways, they did.

Baylor cornerback C.J. Wilson predicted an 'I-35 Surprise'. So on their first two drives, Baylor burned the shorthanded Texas defense and came away with two quick scores. Texas, on the other hand, needed four drives before they were able to come up with their second first down.
The first quarter ended with Baylor ahead of Texas 10-0. Surprise.

Texas opened the second quarter with a TD and went on to an easy win in an ugly blowout. The defense hit hard and scored twice on five turnovers, Colt McCoy threw for a school-record six touchdowns earning him the Cingular All-America Player of the Week Award, and Jermichael Finley turned a would-be interception into another spectacular touchdown.
So there was plenty to be proud of, but in the end it's hard to ignore the fact that Baylor scored more points against the Longhorns than Ohio State.

Baylor - 31
Texas - 63
