The projected high tomorrow is 87F. That sounds like football weather to me.
Baylor will host ULM tomorrow in a rematch of a game that was closer than it should have been for the Bears last season, while the Warhawks will look to take one from the Big 12 after a 34-0 loss to Oklahoma. Baylor's incredibly fast pace has turned heads this season, and the Bears will look to add to the 101 points and 1,000-plus yards they've already accumulated from the no-huddle. One ULM player to watch is tailback Jyruss Edwards, both for his talent on the field and his ability to get back up from whatever life hands him. Art Briles will use next week's bye-week as a chance to sign copies of his new biography, "Looking Up," with the book's author Nick Eatman. Briles and Eatman will be in the SUB from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 26.
Women's basketball will have five additional games televised this season, bringing the preliminary season total to 13, though more games may be added if away games are broadcast on opposing third-tier networks. The Lady Bears' first televised game of the season will be Nov. 18 versus Rice on Fox Sports Southwest Plus.
No. 9 soccer hosts North Texas tonight at Betty Lou Mays Field, weather permitting, as the Bears look for their seventh win of the season. Baylor will also face Boise State on Sunday afternoon in Waco for the first contest the two teams have played.
Volleyball (5-7) will look to find .500 this weekend in the Flo Hyman Collegiate Cup hosted by the University of Houston. The Bears will play LSU tonight and North Texas and the home Cougars tomorrow in the round-robin style tournament.
Men's Tennis will open their fall season hosting the HEB Intercollegiate at the Hurd Tennis Center this weekend. Baylor will have six competitors in the tournament, including current ITA No. 16 Patrick Pradella.
Baylor softball and track-and-field released their 2014 schedules yesterday, and softball announced their roster for the upcoming season. The Lady Bears will play a travel-heavy season in order to boost their RPI as they make a bid for the Women's College World Series behind the arms of senior Whitney Canion and sophomore Heather Stearns. Track and field will attend six indoor meets and 11 outdoor competitions across spring 2014, starting the season at the Texas A&M Team Invitational in College Station, Texas in January.
