The Texas Longhorns look to keep their hopes alive for a Big 12 Championship Game appearance when they host the Baylor Bears in the regular season finale. We're breaking down the betting angles with our Baylor-Texas college football picks and predictions.
Texas (7-4, 5-3) needs a win and a loss by Kansas State to Kansas to clinch a spot in next week's conference championship game. In such a scenario, both the Longhorns and Wildcats would have identical 6-3 conference records, but Texas h as the head-to-head tiebreaker over Kansas State by virtue of its 34-27 road win in Manhattan on November 5.
Baylor (6-5, 4-4) is coming off consecutive home losses to Kansas State and TCU, the two-best teams in the Big 12, following a three-game winning streak. The Bears came the closest to ending the Horned Frogs' undefeated season, but a TCU field goal as time expired allowed it to walk out of Waco with a dramatic 29-28 victory. The loss dropped Baylor to 1-23 straight up as an unranked team against an AP top-five opponent.
Here are our top picks for the college football Week 13 game between Baylor and Texas (odds via DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).
