No. 7 Baylor Soccer begins their season-long home stand this weekend a match against undefeated Cal Poly tonight at 7 p.m. The Bears are currently tied with their best start in program history, currently sitting at 5-0-1. Baylor will host McNeese State on Sunday, where they will also honor the seniors on this year's team.

Volleyball will attempt to turn their season around during the Baylor Invitational this weekend, starting with a game against Appalachian State this afternoon at 12:30 p.m. The Bears will also face Northwestern State tonight at 7 p.m. and Colorado on Saturday.

Women's tennis opens their fall season today with four players competing in The Racquet Club Collegiate Invitational in Midland, Texas. Returning teammates Kiah Generette and Victoria Kisialeva, as well as transfer Makenzie Craft and freshman Blair Shankle will compete in the 64-man singles draw, and the Lady Bears will also team up for the 32-pair doubles draw.

Baylor men's golf is in Illinois to compete in the Fighting Illini Invitational, the Bears' second tournament of the season. The 54-hole tournament will be hosted at the Olympia Fields Country Club, which also hosted the 2003 U.S. Open. The Bears placed second in their season opener, with three of this tournament roster finishing in the top 15.

Equestrian scrimmages with SMU this Saturday at the Willis Family Equestrian Center in Waco, Texas in an exhibition meet to give both teams a chance to experience NCEA-style competition.

Finally, a cluster balloon pilot was forced to abandon his dream of flying across the Atlantic Ocean, for now. Yes, cluster balloons are exactly what you're thinking. Also, in case you somehow didn't know, there was a fox on the field last night in Lubbock amongst other weird things.
