WACO, Texas (AP) Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty has tried to avoid calling Oklahoma State a revenge game for the No. 6 Bears.

The Bears' national championship hopes last season unraveled with a 49-17 loss at Oklahoma State, after going into that game undefeated and No. 3 in the AP poll.

Baylor (8-1, 5-1 Big 12, No. 7 CFP) is now contending for a spot in the first four-team College Football Playoff and trying for its second Big 12 title in a row. And this year's game is Saturday night at home, where the Bears have won 23 of 24 since 2011 and 14 in a row to match No. 2 Alabama for the longest active streak.

Oklahoma State (5-5, 3-4) was No. 11 and on a roll for this matchup last year, but is now mired in a four-game losing streak that is the longest since coach Mike Gundy's first season in 2005.
