Stadium Journey Fanfare Score:



UB is 0-1 all time at Floyd Casey Stadium, losing 34-6 to RGIII's Bears in 2010.

2011 Highlights: Baylor went 8-0 at home scoring 51 points on average to propel RG III to the Heisman Trophy after wins over #14 TCU, #5 Oklahoma and #24 Texas.

2012 Highlights: Baylor went 5-1 at home only scoring 44 points on average while scoring upsets over #1 Kansas State and #23 Oklahoma State.

2013 Outlook: With a new stadium scheduled to open next year, this will be the final year at Floyd Casey. The Bears hope to skate through the first 5 games against Wofford, ULM, WVU, Iowa St and Buffalo before facing major Big XII tests vs Oklahoma and Texas.

Players to watch: Lache Seastrunk. The Oregon transfer compensates for his lack of humility with speed, with or without his hamstrings. Baylor will start their third QB in three years, this year it looks to be junior Bryce Petty. He will be protected by Baylor's only returning first team Big XII player: Cyril Richardson at Guard. Baylor also returns 3 standouts on defense: Linebackers Bryce Hager and Eddie Lackey and Safety Ahmad Dixon. Those three players combined for 330 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, 7 sacks and 6 interceptions in 2012. For a more in depth preview visit the Baylor Blog: Our Daily Bears
