Two more wins. Two games remaining.
The Baylor coaching staff, along with the team (and hopefully their fans), believe that wins in those final two showdowns are possible.
And if the Bears can accomplish that feat, they will still be bowl bound.
Granted, that won’t be easy as the green and gold's quest for a bowl begins on Saturday, Nov. 21, against Texas A&M in College Station.
This weekend’s intrastate rivalry with the Aggies is absolutely a winnable game for the Bears, especially after proving they could win in a tough road environment at Missouri earlier this season.
In addition, Texas A&M has been one of the most inconsistent teams in all of college football this year; they can win a shocker, then get blown out by 50.
Although the Bears will be hitting the road for Kyle Field (a place many have said was too tough for opposing teams), I believe Baylor will beat Texas A&M this weekend.
Freshman quarterback Nick Florence has proven he can rack up record-breaking numbers in the clutch (and on the road). I’d expect to see that Florence (along with a reenergized Baylor bunch led by gridiron guru Art Briles) on Saturday.
Let’s just take one game at a time for now. We’ll examine the Baylor-Texas Tech rivalry later next week.
Until then, SIC EM BEARS!
