Postgame Celebration: Texas-35, Baylor-34

Good defeats evil. Evil was ranked #8.

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

Put the Charlie Strong swan song on hold and let's celebrate a win over a scandal-plagued Baylor program that hit new lows in basic human decency during the Briles regime.

If it starts Baylor on a season tailspin from the dizzying heights of 6-0, even better.

Texas rode timely big plays in the passing game and an OL beatdown of the Bear front 7 along with some key second half red zone defense to edge out the Bears 35-34 in Austin, securing the game's final score on a Trent Domingue 39 year field goal with 46 seconds left on the clock.

Baylor amassed 624 yards of offense in a losing effort - 398 of them on the ground.  It wasn't always pretty.  And the Longhorns certainly didn't always play smart.  But they did play hard.

Texas had several heroes on offense, but D'onta Foreman's 32 carries for 250 yards put him over 1,000 yards for the season and were instrumental in carrying the Horns to victory.

This is your celebration thread.  So get to it.  Hook 'em!
