Baylor is fresh off their first game versus Albany. In that matchup, the Bears took a blowout victory. As for the Cougars, they played South Florida in their opener and they ended up picking up a win in a blowout as well.
Baylor had a pretty nice season in 2021. The Bears went 12-2 overall and 7-2 in Big 12 play. That would leave Baylor in second place, and they took the conference championship with a win over Oklahoma State. The Bears finished off with a win over Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl.
