AUSTIN, Texas — It is amazing how a victory, even against an opponent as overmatched as winless Baylor was against Texas last Saturday, can breed confidence and create swagger and provide justification from within that the changes the Longhorns have made this year are producing tangible results.

Texas needs all the confidence, swagger and justification it can muster this week when it travels to Fort Worth for a crucial Big 12 Conference matchup with No. 10 TCU. Kickoff is at 6:15 p.m. CDT at Amon Carter Stadium.

The Longhorns likely will require a lot more
