Why you should watch this game
Everyone is watching the Baylor program to see if the team will fall. You have people tuning in just to see them every weekend and every weekend they’re disappointed.

Why shouldn’t watch this game
Your uncle is having a barbecue and you’re invited. So whatever he’s watching… your watching this weekend.

Offense
Why aren’t the Bears in the Top 10? I understand that there are other dynamic teams from other conferences making a lot of noise, but Baylor has shown the country that through adversity… they’re winners! No one is talking about Seth Russell. He has over 1300 yards passing, 14 touchdowns and only four interceptions. He’s putting up Heisman numbers but no one is talking about him. He’s averaging 278 yards a game. KU is giving up an average of 419 yards through the air and on the ground. So the Bears will be just fine this weekend at home. Shock Linwood’s 454 yards on the ground so far shouldn’t be eclipsed by KU’s defensive line gap match up. He will look real good carrying the ball at least 17 times getting at least 100 yards on Saturday.

Defense
Stopping KU won’t be as easy as everyone’s thinking. Sophomore QB Ryan Willis is dangerous! He changes the dynamics of the game with his quick passes and bubble screens. The Bears defense has to come out early and hit KU in the mouth and not back off when they get a lead. This will be a good one and KU’s offense will play aggressive right from the start. Anyone can lose at anytime.

Prediction
I don’t see a change in what everyone is predicting. The Bears will beat KU by at least 17 points.
If you’re ordering pizza for the game, get a meat lovers on hand tossed crust and honey bar-b-que wings for this one! On a scale of 1 to 10. This one is an 7.5 for Baylor!
