AUSTIN, Texas — The wind almost could be heard whipping across the field inside Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium early Saturday evening as Texas kicker Trent Domingue began his pre-kick routine for what would end up being a game-winning 39-yard field goal.
The only sound in the massive stadium was the urgent, nearly primal, screams of the few thousand Baylor faithful among a throng of 97,822 fans, but those were quickly replaced by a thunderous, approving roar and a huge exhale of relief from the home crowd. Domingue’s kick split the uprights and gave the Longhorns a come-from-behind, 35-34 victory over eighth-ranked Baylor that might be the turnaround win Texas and Charlie Strong, its beleaguered coach, has been searching for.
