Scouting Baylor

Record: 9-0, 6-0 Big 12, coming off a 63-34 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday.

Best player: The Bears have the best top-end talent in the Big 12, and arguments can made for quarterback Bryce Petty, running back Lache Seastrunk, wide receiver Tevin Reese or even guard Cyril Richardson as Baylor's best. But these Bears are playing defense, too, led by safety Ahmad Dixon, who is versatile as a run stuffer and cover man. And he's an intimidator, too.

The case for Baylor: The Bears have been the class of the league all season, blending dominant offense and defense in posting double-digit wins every time out. They've yet to reveal a weakness.

The case against Baylor: In the crosshairs of a backloaded schedule, the Bears still have some proving to do. Wins over just OK Oklahoma and Texas Tech hardly represent confirmation, with OSU and Texas still to come. Baylor has not won in Stillwater since 1939, and most of its trips have turned out ugly.
