The Wildcats are riding high after winning the Diamond Head Classic. One more nonconference tuneup remains before Big 12 play opens next Wednesday in Lawrence.
Big 12 Football
Texas moved the Big 12's bowl record to 2-0 with a 21-10 win over Cal last night in the Holiday Bowl. Baylor looks to make it 3-0 today when it takes on Washington in the Alamo Bowl.
Baylor's Robert Griffin III is reportedly leaning toward entering the 2012 NFL Draft. As much as I enjoy watching him play, I'd much rather face Nick Florence than RG3 next season in Waco.
Big 12 Basketball
Baylor eked out a 54-52 win over No. 14 Mississippi State in Dallas last night. While I still have my doubts about how Baylor will hold up over an 18-game conference schedule, there's no doubt that they are ridiculously long and athletic.
Conference Realignment...or something
The Pac-12 and Big 10 will enter a scheduling alliance beginning in 2017 in which all 12 teams in both leagues will play a cross-conference game each year.
