Photo: Baylor’s Already Added 2014 To The McLane Stadium “Big 12 Champions” Wall

This college football season is not even over yet, but Baylor is already showing off its latest Big 12 Championship at McLane Stadium. The athletic department has added 2014 to the stadium’s northwest wall to go with the 2013 title.

As you might expect, the Spartans didn’t think to cover the massive 390-pound man who waddled down the middle of the field. So Petty...

WATCH: Baylor WR Jay Lee Tosses Nice 53-Yard Touchdown to Fellow WR Corey Coleman

Baylor has shown in recent years that it is not afraid to use a little 'trickeration' from time to time in order to make the big play. When trick plays work they are things of beauty, but when they don't--man, it can get ugly. Good thing for fans of the Bears is their team is pretty good at being tricky when they want to be.They proved just that in the first quarter of the Cotton...

WATCH: Baylor WR KD Cannon Gets Bears on the Scoreboard With Beautiful 49-Yard Bomb

After watching Michigan State march down the field and score the Baylor Bears needed to respond. The Spartans defense is pretty tough so falling behind early was not something Art Briles and company wanted to do. Good thing is with Bryce Petty behind center and a collection of weapons at his disposal there was a good chance the Michigan State lead would not last.Which it didn't after...

Attention, College Football Playoff selection committee: if you leave Baylor out of the playoff and keep TCU in, you’re basically un-American.  That’s what Bears’ coach Art Briles thinks, anyway.  The 59-year-old coach appeared on ESPN’s Mike & Mike program Thursday morning, during which he touched on a number of topics, including the health of his quarterback,...

Baylor Trashes Oklahoma, Vaults into College Football Playoff Discussion

Thanks to its 48-14 thrashing of Oklahoma, it’s time to put Baylor back in the national championship conversation. Make no mistake about it: the Bears beat a very good Sooner team. Sure, OU has two losses, but both of those came against teams currently ranked in the top 10.
