Saturday 3:30 PM: Baylor vs. #16 West Virginia
One of the truly enjoyable narrative arcs of the 2016 season has involved the eminently justified implosion of the deplorable, scandal-ridden Baylor program. When the Bears started the season an impressive looking 6-0, it seemed like we might have to stomach the deeply unpleasant thought of watching them in the playoffs. Fate has intervened to the tune of five straight delicious losses and things would appear to get no easier against the Mountaineers this week. The 9-2 West Virginia has impressed on both sides of the ball this season and even kicked around the playoff scene before being routed at home by Oklahoma two weeks ago. A tenth win here would cap a stellar regular season and likely guarantee a prestige bowl appearance.
