Improvements shown vs. Baylor need to continue

After two weeks of what seemed to be constant outside noise surrounding Texas football, the Longhorns made their return to the field over the weekend and handled business against Baylor in the 27-16 win over the Bears. Fourth-year head coach Tom Herman seemed pleased with the improvements he saw from his team immediately after the Baylor game, particularly with how both sides of the ball handled the running game. But how can Texas use the confidence gained in the win over Baylor to its advantage as it makes its way down the second half of the 2020 schedule?

On this week’s reaction episode of The Flagship Podcast, Horns247 columnist Chip Brown and managing editor Taylor Estes deliver their quick-hitter takeaways from Saturday’s game. The hosts dive in to the Longhorns’ performance on both sides of the ball, including the defense showing some improvement on third downs and in going up against the Baylor running game, and how the Texas offense not abandoning the running attack paid off in the end for Herman and the offensive staff.

Chip and Taylor also discuss how Texas can use the improvements and confidence gained from Saturday’s game moving forward, especially starting this week as the Longhorns have an uphill battle on their hands this weekend when Texas hits the road for Stillwater, Okla. to face the lone remaining undefeated team in the Big 12 conference — Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
