Our guys have to realize how we got to this point. It’s through energy every day and finding ways to get better. We have to utilize this and that’s what I told our coaches. It’s about executing at a high level. That’s the biggest thing that we have to do. There’s great football being played in the Big 12 and teams must execute. All focus is on beating Baylor.”"
