Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Everything Baylor! all in one place for your viewing pleasure.

Happy Sequential-Numbers-Day!

The winner of this weekends Baylor-TCU game gets the bragging rights of a "series lead" for a year, as the current record for the match between former cross-town rivals stands at 50-50-7. Baylor first played what would become TCU in 1899, and that game, believe it or not, ended in a 0-0 tie. Saturday's game is extremely unlikely to end in a 0-0 tie as Baylor's powerful offense, led by first-year starter Nick Florence, takes on a Casey Pachall-less TCU. TCU head coach Gary Patterson tried to not talk about Casey Pachall in his pre-game press conference, and managed to get a few actual game-related items in. The Baylor defense looks to regain some respect against TCU, after having to sit through a bye week, though the break will allow some injured players to return. The Bears did have two players, Terrance Williams and Cyril Richardson, make Phil Steele's Midseason All-American list.

Baylor Volleyball won its first conference game of the season last night against Texas Tech, beating the Raiders 3-1 behind Hope Ogden's career high 26 digs. The Bears fell behind 0-1 before rallying to take the final three sets and move to 14-6 on the season, with a 1-4 conference record. Next up for Baylor is a road game at Oklahoma on Friday night, to take on the 14-6, 3-2 Sooners in Norman.

(20) Baylor Soccer (not Baylor Basketball, as the Lariat article reads) takes on the undefeated-in-conference-play WVU at Morgantown tomorrow at 6:00 PM CT. The Mountaineers are ranked 25th and have a 9-3-3 record on the season, and play in a style quite familiar to the Bears.

Our friend David Ubben over at the ESPN Big XII blog has his primer for this weekend, predictions, and "what to watch for" posted. You should check them out. I can save you a little time if all you're interested in is his prediction for our game-- he says we win 44-27. I'd take that, I think. We finally did not make his "Upset Alert" in a game we're favored to win. That honor went to Kansas State for whatever reason.
