Members of the Baylor and Waco professional community will experience Baylor football like never before from their newly revealed luxury suites.
Big 12 Conference
Despite the 45,000 people set to fill up McLane Stadium this weekend, parking will not be a concern on game day, said Drew Vincent, a member of the Waco Downtown Development Cooperation.
Almost from the moment he arrived on campus in February of 2008, head coach Art Briles told the administration that he wanted a stadium. Baylor had not qualified for a bowl game since 1994 and finished winless in the Big 12 in 2007, but Briles thought a stadium would be necessary to take the next step toward becoming an elite football program.
The opening of McLane Stadium will bring with it several changes to the game day experience meant to increase fan safety, according to a press release by Baylor Athletics.
Rates of campus sex crimes are on a steady rise nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
Two Baylor students are in Washington, D.C., this week to advocate for a Greek housing bill the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act, or CHIA.
Student Government officers travelled to Washington, D.C., to represent Baylor at Big XII on the Hill. Student leaders from all of the Big XII schools travel to D.C. to meet with legislators and advocate for college students. They met with more than a dozen legislators and discussed issues that pertain to students today.
When asked during Big 12 media day back in July whether Baylor could win a Big 12 Championship, senior safety Ahmad Dixon was quick to respond.
“Can God save a hooker?”
Well, it seems as though the answer to that question is an emphatic ‘yes.’
Kansas (2-1) vs. No. 20 Texas Tech (4-0)
Kansas head coach Charlie Weis has hardly anything to work with in Lawrence. Kansas may be 2-1, but two wins are against Louisiana Tech and FCS opponent South Dakota, both at home.
Texas Tech has been one of the more surprising teams so far this season. A rebuilding process was expected after former Tech quarterback Kliff Kingsbury took over as head coach in Lubbock. The Red Raiders rank third in the nation in passing yards with 408.5 a game.
TCU (1-2) vs. SMU (1-2)
The Horned Frogs have been inconsistent on both sides of the ball, ranking outside the top 50 in passing yards, rushing yards, points for, points against and total defense.
Luckily for TCU, this may be the game to turn things around. SMU is coming off a big loss to No. 10 Texas A&M in College Station. SMU barely sneaked by in a win against FCS opponent Montana State.
