NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma and Baylor has the makings of a rivalry.
After a blowout win over Kansas last weekend, Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty deflected question after question in the same manner, reiterating succinctly that he was "ready for OU." His 10th-ranked Bears meet the 16th-ranked Sooners on Saturday with a lot to prove.
Baylor is the defending Big 12 champion, in part because the Bears rolled past Oklahoma 41-12 last season. Baylor has won two of the past three games in the series, yet, Baylor is fighting for respect because of perception. Oklahoma has won seven national titles, five Heismans and eight Big 12 titles. The Sooners’ 11-0 record at home against Baylor illustrates the dramatic historical difference between the programs – and why Baylor considers it so important to measure up.
