The Baylor Bears are coming off a magical season in which they defeated both Oklahoma and Texas en route to an improbable Big 12 championship. However, Art Briles and the Bears will not be able to fly below the radar this year. Here are five must-see games for Baylor fans this upcoming season.

The ninth-ranked Bears travelled to Ft. Worth last season and escaped with a hard-fought 41-38 victory over the Horned Frogs. TCU was only 4-8 a year ago, but six of the losses were by 10 points or less, and four of their setbacks were by three points or less. The Horned Frogs will once again have a good defense, which should keep them in every game this upcoming season.

Baylor will be looking to avenge last year's embarrassing 49-17 loss in Stillwater that almost cost the Bears the Big 12 championship. Quarterback Bryce Petty and All-American wideout Antwan Goodley will lead a potent offensive attack that was totally shutdown by the Cowboys' defense last season.

The Bears won for the first time in Manhattan last season, but it was not easy as the Wildcats held a 25-21 lead heading into the fourth quarter before coming out on the wrong end of a 35-25 score. Kansas State limited Baylor to their lowest offensive production of the season last year, but will be hard-pressed to do the same on the road in Waco this season.

Baylor and Texas fought to a 3-3 haalftime tie last year before the Bears caught fire in the second half en route to a lopsided 30-10 home win over the Longhorns. This year, the defending Big 12 champion must travel to Austin for a huge matchup against a much tougher Texas squad that will be looking to make a statement against the Bears.

Bob Stoops and the Sooners will have revenge on their minds when the Bears invade Norman this season. Last year's hero, quarterback Bryce Petty, will need a repeat performance after rushing for two scores and throwing three TD passes if Baylor is to knock off Oklahoma in their own backyard.
