Reese Strickland-US PRESSWIRE
At least we can say that we have the oldest Homecoming celebration in the nation! Officially! Like, Smithsonian official and everything! Of course, that won't be much comfort if this next week's game (should we call it the Battle of the Basement? Too soon?) goes the same way last week's did. I'm not even sure where to start, so...the Bears were both not greedy enough in Ames and they really shouldn't be in the Big 12 cellar (and yet here they are). Turnovers, not the delicious kind filled with fruit, but the kind that usually, no, always lead to points against, are plaguing Baylor. Ah, if only we could turn those numbers into pastries! After saying they were starting a "new season," the Bears are now 0-1, which can be pointed right towards the offense, for once, which probably collapsed under the weight of having to hold the defense up. And here's your official story on the 35-21 loss to Iowa State.
Baylor Volleyball lost 3-1 to (16) Kansas State on Saturday, despite a narrow third set win. The Bears outblocked the Wildcats, 10-9.5, and Torri Campbell led all players with 5. Baylor has a week off before returning to the Ferrell Center to play (17) Kansas on Saturday at 7:00 PM.
Now, for some good news! Baylor Women's Golf is tied for sixth place after the first day of the Alamo Invitational, but sophomore Haley Davis is tied for the lead with SMU's Jennifer Park. Men's Golf is hosting the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate with SMU today and tomorrow at the Royal Oaks Country Club in Dallas. The 14-team tournament will play 54-holes, and the Bears hope to improve on their 7th place finish from their last tournament.
Finally, Baylor Women's Basketball claimed the top ranking in the AP poll after holding that spot through the entirety of last season. The Lady Bears play an exhibition game against Oklahoma City University at 7:00 PM on Tuesday in the Ferrell Center, and both basketball teams open their regular season on Friday, November 9th.
