The AP top 10 is probably a little different than how the BCS top 10 will shake out, but let’s talk about some predictions for what we know at this point. The BCS rankings will be released at 8:30 EST this evening.
No. 5 Baylor Bears
Bryce Petty, Lache Seastrunk and the Baylor Bears have been completely unstoppable in 2013 and are the highest ranking they’ve ever been. The problem is, they have faced absolutely nobody. The next three weeks will tell us everything about the Baylor Bears.
Nov. 7 – #13 Oklahoma
Nov. 16 – #15 Texas Tech
Nov. 23 – @ #18 Oklahoma State
Nov. 30 – @ TCU
Dec. 7 – Texas
Don’t get too high on Baylor just yet. Oklahoma is on the radar and if Kansas State can give this offense trouble (and they did), OU is bound too. Bob Stoops and the Sooners will roll into Waco and give Baylor a wake-up call, and their first loss of the season.
But wait, I’m not done making Bears’ fans mad. After getting Texas Tech the next week, I think Baylor then goes to Boone-Pickens and gets beat there. Then they’ll kinda crush a down TCU and ultimately pull away from Texas at home.
I know those two losses won’t be popular choices, but they just haven’t faced any competition. On the other hand, if they beat Oklahoma in ten days, I do see them going undefeated in a Cinderella season. One thing’s for sure, they’ll be pulling for Miami to beat FSU and Stanford to beat Oregon in the upcoming week and a half.
