The hype surrounding Baylor football is reaching new highs this year as the Bears remain undefeated and in national title contention. In fact, demand to watch them play has led to Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw to remove the tarp that normally remains draped over the endzone seats at Floyd Casey Stadium for the home game against Oklahoma on November 7th.
The South End Zone tarp will be pulled for the Baylor-OU game on November 7th!

The fact that the tarp is being removed for the big game is a great sign for Baylor, which expects that the game will be sold out that night. There is also a belief that the tarp will stay removed for the home game against Texas on December 7th, according to ESPN’s Max Olson:
