Coming off back-to-back conference champion seasons, the Baylor Bears simply look to reload with Seth Russell under center. Expectations run extremely high on the field after finishing one spot out of the first ever college football playoff. Of course, many pointed to a weak non-conference schedule while others stated "One True Champion" hurt the folks out of Waco. Regardless, the Bears look to erase a bowl loss in which the defense allowed 21 unanswered points. Could the former laughing stock join the Oklahoma Sooners as the only program to win three consecutive conference crowns? The potential is there with so many returning starters but the target on their back is larger than ever.
