Trib sports guys Brice Cherry, John Werner and Brian Crownover return as the undefeated Bears take a Big 12 breather:
It's Baylor's bye week. The Bears play Kansas on homecoming Oct. 15.
• It wasn't the cleanest performance in Ames, where the Bears had to battle to avoid an upset by the unranked Cyclones. The BU defense didn't show up for three quarters. How concerning is that for Baylor going forward?
• The university has been in the spotlight again this week with the sudden resignation of Baylor's Title IX coordinator. Will it be a distraction for the team?
• It's the second week in October, which means it's UT-OU time, also known as the Disappointment Bowl, with two storied programs floundering this year. How much pressure will there be on the team and coach that loses this one?
• So, who do we like in the Red River Rivalry?
• Elsewhere in the Big 12, Texas Tech takes its high-powered offense to Manhattan to face a stout Kansas State defense. How will this one shake out?
• The Bears are off this week. What's your favorite off-week activity when you have a day or two to yourself?
