Sitting here now, in the comfort of my warm home, it's still almost impossible to fathom: the Baylor Bears are your 2013 Big 12 Champions. We have seen the mountaintop. We have arrived.

Top 25 Rankings/Results:

Because Baylor is locked in to the Fiesta Bowl as the Big 12 Champion (who won't play in the NCG), rankings and the like don't really matter to us anymore.  But don't tell that to people on twitter!

Coaches Poll: Baylor 5th, up from #7 last week.  I am pleasantly surprised to see Baylor jump so many teams. 
AP Poll: Baylor 6th, up from #9 a week ago.

Bowl Projections:

Baylor is going to the Fiesta Bowl, where we will play UCF.  There is little intrigue here.
