Baylor, despite not playing the opening weekend, moved up to No. 24 in the Amway Coaches Poll. The Bears are one of four ranked Big 12 teams. Oklahoma (No. 3), Texas (No. 8) and Oklahoma State (No. 12) are the other ranked Big 12 teams.
The polls are not ranking Big 10 or PAC-12 teams because those leagues aren’t playing.
Baylor is not ranked in the AP Poll. But the Bears would be ranked No. 26. They’re only 11 points below Pitt for 25th.
The Bears open the season against Houston on Saturday at 11 am in Waco. That game airs on Fox.
