It's not a bye-week, anymore!
Baylor moved up in the polls despite sitting idle this weekend, and is now ranked No. 17 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the Coaches' Poll. The Nov. 7 game between Baylor and Oklahoma may end up as a de facto Big 12 Championship, as Oklahoma State's loss to West Virginia throws doubt on their offensive prowess. If you've missed Baylor football, then here's a neat video from SESP with GoPro footage of a Baylor practice.
