Shock Linwood ran for 148 yards and the clinching touchdown and No. 7 Baylor overcame a rare off day by quarterback Bryce Petty and the nation's No. 1 offense to beat Texas 28-7 on Saturday.

With Petty misfiring, the Bears (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) won with tough defense, two big plays on special teams and a power running game that wore down Texas (2-3, 1-1) in the second half.

Terrell Burt scored Baylor's first touchdown with a 62-yard return after a blocked field goal in the first quarter. A fake punt in the third set up Petty's touchdown pass to Antwan Goodley. Linwood put it away with a short touchdown run in the fourth.

Texas held Baylor to 390 total yards, but only narrowly avoided its first shutout at home since 1976. Longhorns quarterback Tyrone Swoopes had three turnovers, including a fumble at the Baylor 1 just before halftime.
