Henry Melton rushes for a touchdownA great Saturday for Longhorn fans started off with a sound Texas victory of the improved Baylor Bears. Though the game was in Waco, it was a decidedly burnt orange crowd (photo #20) and I was one of many UT fans to make it down to the game from Dallas. I took as many photos of the game as I could before my camera batteries died midway through the third quarter. The extra batteries I brought don’t help much when they’re left in the car.

Overall a great game by the Horns, especially coming off last week’s disappointing showing against Oklahoma State. The offense started off fast and never let up, racking up an amazing 645 yards of total offense against a pretty good Baylor defense. Ramonce Taylor was the game’s star. Playing running back full time for the first time this season, he displayed the brilliance that has had me clamoring for him to get more touches all season long. The defense gave up a few yards early on but settled in nicely and ended up shutting out the Bears’ offense. A total team effort and the Horns’ most complete game so far this season.

Highlight of the game was definitely Matt Nordgren’s 15 yard, Australian rules football inspired, touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
