Lackluster performances from a few previously ranked teams and a dominant win from the Bears could sneak Baylor into the Coaches' Poll, according to CBS Sports' Paul Meyerberg. Looking forward to next week, the Bears play Buffalo at 2:30 PM CT at the Case in what could be a slightly tougher matchup, and a more defining contest for the team. Art Briles acknowledged the step up in competition in Monday's "Meet the Press," and talked about Baylor's plans to defend against Buffalo's star linebacker Khalil Mack (non-sub link, click through front screen.) In slightly terrifying news, Briles thinks that his team can, and will, play faster, apparently by bending the rules of space and time and scoring touchdowns before the game's even started. Actually, I wouldn't really be surprised.
