Well, in case you haven’t noticed, things look a lot different around here!
Somehow, Baylor is picked to win this weekend over West Virginia by Bleacher Report, though most everything else I’ve read puts the Bears back in their accustomed place as the underdogs, due to the...let's just say "lack of defense." That, among other things, is covered in the official pregame rundown. Baylor went undefeated this season in non-conference play, marking the second year in a row the Bears have accomplished that feat. The Bears face WVU next Saturday at 11:05 AM CT in Morgantown, and look to welcome the Mountaineers to the Big 12 with a fast-paced, offensive-centric game. This weekend's game marks the true beginning of a new era for the Big 12, and it's a beginning that's sure to be exciting.
Baylor Volleyball is at home tonight, 7:00 PM in the Ferrell Center. The Bears are looking to “Fill the Ferrell” for this ESPNU televised game against (9) UT. Come help give BUVB a home-field advantage at their Big 12 home opener where the Bears are looking to break a 20 game losing streak against the Longhorns.
And, speaking of new things like the new SB Nation and the new Big 12 teams, there's a new taco truck/stand at Common Grounds that I highly recommend. Also, if you're not a current student, if you come visit, check out the new SUB and the new(ish) Starbucks in the library.
