Keeping It Under 30 Would Be An Improvement - Looking At The Baylor Bears

The last time Oklahoma played Baylor it was a humbling experience to the tune of 29 points. Now that the Sooners are riding a five game losing streak there isn't much more out there that could be worse. Nonetheless, OU will try to prove that they're not as bad as the team that was blown out in Waco and a home win over a Top 25 team would be something to take some pride in.
