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.

Why won't they move some other students down to those both sides of the Line or move the Line to an area not in direct camera vision. That looks awful.

Hoping Baylor gets settled now. The defense will get their stops and turnovers. Need the offense to find some stability

Smith is a helluva hard runner, but major props to the O line on that drive. That was some of their best work of the year. They were literally blowing up all of BYU's D line, several times pushing them almost 5 yards downfield.

I love all the RGIII and Baylor love but I don't think I would be enjoying this if I were a BYU fan.

Would someone get Texada to W T F U.

BYU has found something with these deep balls

ESPN leaning into the RG3 and Baylor connection more this game than the OSU game. Guessing it's because they are in Waco.

Man... that's the 3rd pass against him where Texada never bothered to look for the ball and was completely lost.

First two gave them almost 100 yards... at least the 3rd one missed.

Jackson does a great job on 3rd down blitzes.
