Baylor (3-0) will host No. 14 Iowa State (2-1) at McLane Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the first Big 12 home game for the Bears in 2021. 

Articles: Baylor vs. Iowa State 


Quote of the week...

Dave Aranda: “Within the football phase of it, it allows you to play complimentary football, get the run establish, to have a play action pass that looks like it and put people in conflict, and gives you the ability to play all four downs, because you're talking about fourth and one and a fourth and two, as opposed to a third and 13. It just gives you a more balanced, comprehensive approach to things. But seeing the confidence in the guys, the offensive line, and tight ends for that matter, they've continued to improve as well, just blocking. Long ways to go, but like what we've done so far.


Craig Smoak’s Players to Watch 

Iowa State — Running Back Breece Hall 

ISU’s biggest offensive threat, period. Hall has a touchdown in all three games this season and averages around 100 all-purpose yards rushing and receiving, which has been a slow start for the ISU offense before last Saturday. But, as Baylor learned the hard way last year, Hall’s capable of a whole lot more. The x-factor of the Cyclones offense, his performance, will play a decisive role in Saturday’s outcome.

Baylor — STAR Jalen Pitre

Like Iowa State, Baylor has its fair share of playmakers on defense. Pitre and Terrel Bernard are the standards in Waco. We know both will factor in heavily on Saturday, but I think Pitre’s versatility and nose for the football is something that could tilt the result in Baylor’s favor, akin to Mike Rose for the visitors. Pitre’s first career interception, also his first career pick-six, came against Brock Purdy and the Cyclones a year ago.

Gonna be an ole fashion knock down drag out type of game. Buckle the chinstraps fellas it's gonna be hard hitting affair. Can't wait to see where we truly stack up. Excellent opportunity for Gerry and the O to put the B12 on notice. Also a chance for the D to play 4 great quarters as compared to the last few years against ISU where we play one really good half followed by an ugly half. Bears 24-20 and a happy weekend to all

I'm having trouble sleeping. I'm too excited about attending a game at McLane for the first time in 2 years. I really like this team and I'm anxious to see how they'll handle a stronger opponent.

When you are crap, nobody knows you've become great till after the fact. Except me. I know we are great. 2 touchdown victory today and will compete for the Big12. Book it.

A 70-35 Big 12 game with over 1,000 combined yards finishes faster than a midwest fatboy slugfest where 1 team has rushed for 6 yards and the other for 39. WTH?

Any idea what station will start our game since ND/Wis is going to go late?

Negative, have not seen an announcement but might have missed it, have been flipping around a bit since I could not care less about Wisconsin-ND.

Assume actual kickoff will be a few minutes still.

Only good thing about ESPN+ is not waiting for a team to finish to see the game. These games are always longer than the time alloted. (I guess UT got the message to finish up quick so people could see Michigan and (the powerhouse of ) Rutgers!)

Anybody else remember road paving equipment that had a little umbrella mounted over the drivers seat? Those umbrellas are what IowaSt has for "tents".
