On the whole few programs have all of the advantages of Texas. To illuminate, the Longhorns have every NCAA Football betting advantage in the world. Recruiting base, money, fans, tradition, and a league of their own. Yet Bevo simply can’t breakthrough. Counter to that is a Baylor program that was as good as dead just three years ago. Head coach Matt Rhule has emerged as one of the nation’s best. Despite lacking the Texas resources, he has produced superior results. As a matter of fact, it is Baylor instead of Texas that is the top conference challenger to Oklahoma.
