The Memphis Tigers are one of those teams that you can never put your guard down against. Baylor nearly lost to South Carolina early last season, but managed to hold on for a two-point victory. When March comes around, the Tigers are normally a team in contention. I know it's an early matchup, but one that should not be overlooked.

The Bears went 1-2 against the Oklahoma Sooners last season, their only victory coming in the Big 12 tournament. The Sooners are ranked 16th in the preseason polls. As for Baylor, they weren't lucky enough to have their name mentioned. You can bet that Scott Drew will have his troops pumped up for their first meeting with red.

Kansas has always been a dominant force in college basketball. Baylor has finally broken free of the ugly, gruesome chains that bind them from the 2003 scandal. With two regular season games scheduled, Baylor is thirsty for a win against the fifth overall preseason ranked team. They lost in double-digits both meetings last year with the Jayhawks. With a tough schedule to start 2015, Baylor will need to come out ready.

Iowa State has taken the NCAA world by storm over the last couple of seasons. Coming out of nowhere with an explosive offense, they went 2-1 to Baylor last season. Somewhat lucky to make it to the Sweet Sixteen last season, Iowa State wants to continue to prove they are a force while Baylor wants to show the world they are here to stay. It will be anything but an easy road victory for the Bears.

It's only appropriate to end the countdown with an in-state rivalry. In the second-to-last game of the regular season for Baylor, they will travel to take on the Texas Longhorns. The Longhorns are ranked ninth in the preseason polls and it has been some time since we have seen the dominance we are accustomed to from Texas. Sure, a ton can happen between now and then, but these are five must-watch games of the 2014-2015 Baylor season.
