WHERE DO WE WANT THE TARP? GONE! WHEN DO WE WANT IT GONE? NOV. 7!

Your Baylor Bears are No. 5 or 6 or 8 in the country, depending on who you ask. That's all the more reason to sell The Case out on Thursday, Nov. 7.

Bowl-eligibility is nice, but the real goal still lies ahead for Baylor, with Oklahoma and Texas Tech looming on the schedule, and even Texas potentially in the way of an undefeated, championship season. Though the Bears still struggle to get a single block on Sportscenter, the rest of the nation is taking notice of the Bears. Baylor has its highest rankings since the 1950s or 1980s, and its highest BCS ranking ever, coming in at No. 8 after the computer calculations graded the Bears out as 12th.

John Werner gives the Bears "all A's" for this Saturday's 71-7 annihilation of Iowa State, and Bryce Petty's 96.1 QBR was the worst on the field for the Bears, with backup Seth Russell putting up a 96.6 and trick-player Levi Norwood earning a 100.0. Baylor football legend Don Trull was honored at Saturday's game for his accomplishments, including his election to the College Football Hall of Fame. Four-star dual threat 2015 quarterback Blake Lynch announced his commitment to Baylor over Twitter yesterday, joining Temple's Chad President and Huntsville offensive lineman Ronnie Major in the fledgling 2015 class.

Women's tennis sophomore Kiah Generette will compete in today's USTA/ITA Regional Championships final after her 4-6, 6-1, 6-1 victory over TCU's Stefanie Tan on Sunday. Generette is 7-1 on the year in singles play, and has a 5 match winning streak.

Men's tennis' Mate Zsiga and Diego Galeano advanced to the singles quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA Regional Championships yesterday, while also competing as a doubles pair and earning a semifinals berth. Zsiga defeated Texas A&M's Jackson Withrow 6-0, 6-1 to advance to the quarterfinal round, and Galeano took the first set against Arturs Kazijevs of SMU 7-5, and moved on after Kazijevs withdrew due to injury.

Soccer fell 2-0 to Kansas on Sunday afternoon, falling to 1-4-1 in conference play. The Bears were ranked as highly as No. 9 earlier in the year, but have struggled recently, including a three-game losing streak.
