Snapping hack from three heart breaking losses in the past four dealt a smashing i|ts Conference title since 192 Fierce rushing by the Texas line hnd sharp pass-defensive patterns put a damper on the heretofore brilliant aerial attack directed by Baylor’s Adrian Burk. Bud McFadin, 235-pound Texas guard, was particularly tough against the Baylor offense, his terrific tackling wrecking the Bear running game time after time. He was equally impressive on offense. Steers Score in Second Texas hit its victory stride in the second quarter. Big Ray Bomeman, a bruising fullback who has been hampered by a knee in jury all season, showed his form of last year as he piled over from the 1-foot line. His plunge capped a methodical 18-play drive of 80 yards in which Borneman and Ran dall Clajr were almost the whole show.

Tackle Bill Wilson recovered on the Baylor 13. A penalty put the ball on the i-yard line, and Campbell scored thu first touchdown of his collegite pareer on a quarterback sneak.

Borneman, who pulled through the Bear forwards as if he, did not have a damage^ knee, picked up 61 yards in nineteen car ries, and Clay gained 55 y^rds on seventeen trips with the ball.) Tex^s gained 164 yards jon the ground and Baylor could manage only 90 from its rushing atempts. The Bear defeat probably drop ped the Baptist school out of the A&M fullback Bob Smith charges toward the line of scrimmage and a second later dived over the struggling mass of linemen to tally a touch down. The six-pointer and the subsequent PAT by Bob Shaeffer tied the score at 20-all.
