Baylor (5-1) looks to stay on track and earn bowl eligibility against No. 19-ranked BYU (5-1) at McLane Stadium on Saturday afternoon in a Homecoming game. 


Quote of the week...

Dave Aranda: “For us like to have a great Monday and for us to have really intentional meetings, when we're out in practice today and we're on the left hash and we're gonna take the drill and go to the right hash, we need to jog and run to that. I'm gonna be... my day is going to be really kind of are we running to this, right? Are we looking to get the most out of today? Or are we looking just to kind of go through the motions because we had a W on Saturday as opposed to an L the week before? I see this week is really being central that way. In terms of how we do what we do.”


Craig Smoak’s Players to Watch 

Baylor — Wide Receiver Drew Estrada 

Estrada cracked the starting lineup for the first time as a Bear last week against West Virginia, and the past couple of games have shown why he was such a highly thought of transfer addition. Now healthier, Estrada is squarely in the mix and has caught ten passes for 178 yards in the past two weeks while also showing his strength as a blocker. It's only a matter of time until he finds the endzone for his first touchdown in green and gold. 

BYU — Quarterback Jaren Hall 

Hall made his return to the lineup last week after missing the previous two contests with bruised ribs and proceeded to surpass the 300-yard passing mark for the first time in his career. Unfortunately, BYU's backs lost three fumbles (one on special teams), the offense failed twice on fourth down, they struggled in the rain, and Hall was picked off on 3rd and 20 in BSU territory to seal the deal. He's a capable passer but still young in his experience and development. The sophomore is also a threat running the ball, although the injury seemed to sideline that aspect of his game last week.

We agree, MrGolfGuy. Predicted scores are offered aplenty. I would love a blow out by the Bears, but all you really need is one point more than the other guy. Just win Bears!

Yeah, the Gameday crew was pretty complementary of Baylor earlier in the show when they first mentioned todays game. Said lots of people sleeping on Baylor that has a balanced offense with real weapons at the skill positions and of course a good defense because of Aranda. Just an opinion but I like hearing complements of Da Bears! Sic'em!

Question about streaming the game. We're in Europe. Any thoughts or ideas how I might stream the game?I pay for the ESPN+ streaming service.

Lots of blue here. Hope that's not a sign of a take over.

I know we are a late arriving crowd but it doesn't look good. I am in 324 and this section is like 70% blue and filling in fast with more blue. Saw a lot in Ferrell Center parking lot as well. Can't imagine why a season ticket holder wouldn't come to this one but looks like a lot sold their tickets. The upper bowl may end up being 70% BYU fans....

Meaningless tidbit: The last time these two teams met Baylor was wearing Kelly green and metallic gold, and BYU was wearing royal blue.

Wow. Bohanon's pass is spot on and Sims makes a great catch between 2 defenders.

WT - you are at the game. On TV looks like BLUE fills up almost 1/3 of the stadium. What does it look like there?

100 level: 2 sections in the open corner, and about 1/2 of one in the horseshoe

200 level: 1 section in open corner, very little elsewhere.

300 level: 3 sections in open corner, 5-6 sections in the horseshoe.

I would put it on a level with OU or UT in a good year, maybe 7500 or so.

And damned if GB throws his first pick.

Not really sure what we were doing there on 1st and goal. Several bad plays and then Bohanon gets picked off for the 1st time.
jdrs

Well that didn't end well.

Well there's the first INT - bad pass
