Baylor didn't play yesterday for obvious reasons, so we're changing how this works a bit. So glad we don't have to go another Saturday without Baylor football.

I was surprised to find as much about Baylor as I did this morning considering we're now 48+ hours out from the big win over Oklahoma.  I suppose I shouldn't have been; people talk Baylor constantly now.

Rankings Update:

Not a lot happened that should help us in the rankings.  Only one team above us lost, as had to happen when Stanford and Oregon played, and Ohio State didn't play.  We'll find out very shortly where Baylor ranks in the Coaches and AP Polls.

AP Poll: Baylor moves up to #4 behind Alabama, FSU, and Ohio State.  Just 7 points behind OSU.
Coaches PollBaylor moves up to #4 behind the same three. 25 points behind OSU.

2013 BCS Top 25 rankings projections, Week 12: Ohio State, Stanford, or Baylor? -
Official BCS standings for Week 12 will be here about 8:40 p.m. ET. One thing we know: the argument moving forward isn't about who's No. 2. It's about who's next in line if No. 1 or No. 2 loses.

That's probably right, don't you think?
