Its insanely ridiculous how good the Baylor Bears are playing right now. They have won 15 consecutive Big XII conference games and 21 games in a row overall. Let's put that in perspective just a little bit. The next longest winning streak within the conference is Oklahoma's which stands at five games. Meanwhile three other Big XII teams are currently riding losing streaks.

Team Overall Record What Happened Last Week
Baylor 32-7 When you've won 21 games in a row you've swept a lot of people. Among Baylor's victims over the last week are Louisiana-Monroe (2 games), Kansas State (3 games) and Texas A&M Corpus Christie (2 games). Catcher Josh Ludy was the Big XII's Player of the Week this week and outfielder Michael Howard shared the Newcomer of the Week honors.
Kansas 15-23 Although they lost the series to Texas A&M the Jayhawks did snap an eight-game losing streak by beating he Aggies 5-3 on Sunday. That spurred a three-game winning streak that also included wins over Baker and St. Mary's on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
Kansas State 19-18 A 3-0 loss to Missouri State last Tuesday night and a sweep at the hands of Baylor sent the Wildcats on a four game losing streak. They've bounced back this week a mid-week two game sweep over Northern Colorado.
Missouri 18-17 Not a good week for the Tigers last week. They won against Arkansas-Little Rock and Illinois in their mid-week games before getting swept by the Sooners in Norman.
Oklahoma 23-14 The Sooners scored a 4-0 win over #9 Arkansas in Norman last Tuesday night. They then swept Missouri over weekend before traveling to Tulsa to beat ORU 6-3 on Tuesday night of this week. Pitcher Damien Magnifico shared the Big XII Newcomer of the Week award this week.
Oklahoma State 19-17 The Cowboys lost a weekend series to Texas two games to one (3-1W, 5-0L, 3-2L) and then lost to Wichita State 2-1 on Tuesday night of this week before finally notching another win last night against Northeastern State.
Texas 21-13 The Longhorns abused Texas A&M Corpus Christi 9-1 last Tuesday night then took two of three games from Oklahoma State before ending their week of baseball with a 2-0 win over Texas State on Tuesday night.
Texas A&M 28-9 Shockingly the Aggies are 2-3 over their last five games but it does include a 2-1 series win over Kansas. They lost to UT Arlington last Tuesday night and then dropped a mid-week game this week to Rice. Michael Wacha was named the Big XII Player of the Week this week.
Texas Tech 22-17 The Red Raiders took a break from conference play last week and were riding a four-game winning streak that included a win over Dallas Baptist and a three-game sweep over Houston but ran into some trouble in mid-week games this week by dropping a two game series against New Mexico.
