The BYU Cougars will take on the Baylor Bears at 10:15 p.m. ET on Saturday at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Both teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games.
When you finish with 265 more yards than your opponent like BYU did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They took their matchup against the South Florida Bulls by a conclusive 50-21 score. The game was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 38-7. The Cougars can attribute much of their success to WR Puka Nacua, who punched in two rushing touchdowns, and RB Christopher Brooks, who rushed for one TD and 135 yards on 13 carries. That touchdown — a 52-yard rush in the third quarter — was one of the highlights of the contest.
Meanwhile, Baylor was no stranger to outgunning their opponent yards-wise, either, with 574 yards compared to the Albany Great Danes’ 246 last week. The Bears took their matchup at home with ease, bagging a 69-10 win over the Great Danes. With Baylor ahead 35-7 at the half, the game was all but over already. They can attribute much of their success to WR Monaray Baldwin, who punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to catching four passes for one TD and 84 yards. Baldwin put himself on the highlight reel with a 50-yard TD scramble in the third quarter.
Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. With both BYU and the Bears swaggering in after impressive performances, it will be interesting to see which team steps up to teach the other some humility.
Four plays to get it in. Let’s do this. Toughness and #Grit.
3rd and 3 again for the Bears…
Williams got the first down! Right at it. Whew. Baylor still alive.
Fourth and 3. Here is the ballgame, version #4.
3rd and 3. Two downs to get it. Come on Bears.
Four downs all the way for the Bears. Just waiting for the play action pass to get the big play. Where is it?
2-Point conversion fails for BYU. A Baylor TD and 2-point conversion will win it!
Will Baylor have to put the ball into Shapen’s hands, and will they let him take it over? Have to match the TD now.
TD BYU, they have to go for 2 here.
Amazing considering the two schools, but this Baylor vs. BYU game is drunk.
So much #CollegeKicker going on right now. Three straight missed under 45-yard field goals. 2OT coming in Provo.
Baylor alive!!!! BYU with the ball first in 2OT. Wow.
Bend. Don’t Break.

Double OT headed your way, tied at 20.#SicEm | #PersonOverPlayer
NO GOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BYU settling for a FG again. Prayers Baylor nation.
A missed XP and a missed FG could cost Baylor here. Dang.
I repeat…
A killer holding penalty takes a TD off the board, and a missed 42-yard field goal set BYU up to win this game over 9th ranked Baylor.
The 42-yard field goal is no good. Not even close. BYU with any points and they win.
Our turn😏
Short dump off to Jones goes nowhere. Baylor with a 4th and 10 coming up. Need a FG here and a defensive stop.
Holding on the edge by Baylor. They got Sims there. Took a touchdown off the board. Killer.
Qualan Jones wasn’t out there on the last fourth quarter drive. Opens up OT with a 4-yard run.
Baylor ball. Let’s do this.
We’re headed to overtime. #SicEm | #PersonOverPlayer
Let’s GOOOOOO @BUFootball !!!
We have overtime in Provo. Baylor survives a 37-yard field goal. Let’s get some free football!
NO GOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HE MISSED IT#SicEm | #PersonOverPlayer
