The Baylor Bears are finally playing again after losing their first game of the season against West Virginia two weeks ago. Now, they take on one of the worst teams in the country. The Kansas Jayhawks go into Waco looking for the upset of the season. Will it happen this Saturday? Here are five bold predictions.

Shock Linwood has been the best running back in the Big 12, averaging just under 100 yards per game. He is going to double that production this week.

Baylor will come on like a banshee this game. They are coming off their first loss and have had to let the bad taste stick in their mouths for two weeks. They will score a bunch to start the game.

Kansas' offense is just bad. They can't score with the passing game and they can't score with the run game. Kansas can't do anything right with the ball, and that won't change on this day.

2. Baylor Will Score 35 Points

This is a surprise. Especially since they will score 21 first quarter points, it is surprising the scoring will slow down so much. They will run the ball for the majority of the game, which will explain the lack of scoring. Baylor just wants to get out with an easy win.

Bryce Petty has dealt with back issues all season long. He will get one big hit in the second half, and head coach Art Briles will remove Petty immediately. He may not be hurt, but there is the chance he could get hurt.
