Football Season Comes to a Close
The Baylor Bears football season is officially over, ending in a painful last-minute loss to West Virginia, 34-31.
Also shoutout to all of the nineteen seniors that were recognized on Senior Day!
With the end of a season that was way below fan and program expectations, all eyes are on the coaching staff. Reports from this weekend indicate that Dave Aranda will remain with the Bears as head coach, though there will be significant staff changes, starting with the firing of offensive coordinator Jeff Grimes.
