So what did we ever decide to call this rivalry thing? The Revivalry? Will there be tee-shirts?
Despite being off this weekend, Baylor Football received more votes in the AP and the USA Today polls yesterday, moving them to "27th," just out of the official rankings. The Bears re-open a historic rivalry this weekend against TCU, with an all-time record of 50-50-7. In case you don't remember, Baylor beat TCU last year to start an eventual 10 win season, and look to defeat a potentially weakened Horned Frog team again this weekend at Floyd Casey Stadium. ESPN Dallas has an interview with Nick Florence from last Friday where he talks about Baylor, going to WVU and what he sees Baylor Football doing going forward.

Even though the Bears sped out to a quick start, Baylor Volleyball is 0-4 in conference play with a heartbreaking 5-set loss to (24) Kansas.
