And Stanford is holding that “High-Powered” Oregon offense to 7 points at halftime.

I am watching right now!! I have the game backed up quite a bit, though. It’s 14-7 Baylor with just under 9 minutes to go in the first half. I will have to avoid this thread from now on so as not to see anymore spoiler posts, lol.

Sic ‘em Bears!!!!!

I thought Baylor was in Maine. Or is it the Brazos that’s in Maine?

I spent time in San Angelo. Does that count?

;)

i don’t know anything about college football, but all big upsets should be blamed on hurricane Sandy, just like they are doing with bad economic data...

Bates College (1855) is in Maine.

Baylor University (1845) is in Texas. When it was founded, Kansas had not yet been opened to settlement, but people were going through Kansas on the Oregon Trail, not realizing that there were no football teams in Oregon either.

If the Mayan calendar were true, the Cubs would have won the World Series.

Kudos to Vandy, they got win number 7 against Rocky Flop.

Sets up the Battle of the 0-Fers between Kentucky and Tennessee.

If somebody told me that Tennessee and Auburn would not win a single conference game between them this year, I would have said they were crazy.

“the Cubs would have won the World Series.”

Even the Mayans knew that was impossible in no less than 10,000 years...

I’m glad you did. Baylor is not folding. In fact they are playing tougher as the game progresses.

Tennessee and Auburn may be at the bottom of the SEC, but the top of the SEC filling out the 4th through 10th spots in the BCS is impressive.

LOL because they all could beat up on Tennessee, Auburn, Kentucky and Arkansas this year....four SEC teams that usually do make a bowl game, that all bottomed out this year.

Vandy probably is the sixth best team in the conference this year, that says it all.

Not all good news on the Baylor front, the women’s BBall team had their 42-game unbeaten string snapped.

I think they should rename the Big 12 to the Arena Football League.

Florida won’t be in it after next week, not they would be anyway since they have no shot at the SEC Title.

They’ve looked terrible the last few weeks.

I’d even say FSU is back in it as well, if they pound Florida like I think they will. But they play in a weak conference, which is killing them.

Texas A&M is not in the running for #1 with 2 losses. But they have been playing as well as any team. They beat Bama and in their 2 losses to LSU and the Gators, they were leading in both games.

Hey, Auburn won! Against a Grambling type school... Chiznick may have a chance.

Still have USC though.

Wouldn’t it be funny if Ohio State winds up as the only unbeaten?

Me too. I think that's the only reason anyone spends time in San Angelo ;-)

Wonder if the Western Sky steakhouse is still there?

Kudos to your granddaughter if she was at the game, because those stands were mostly empty. It’s sad that so many Baylor students missed such a huge night for their school.
