While Baylor's perfect record (8–0, 5–0) survived in a close 17–14 win over West Virginia, it was the offense that once again carried the load. Quarterback Charlie Brewer threw for 277 yards and two touchdowns, while completing 20 of 26 passes, but was also sacked seven times. However, when it counted the most, the defense did not let West Virginia get closer than the Baylor 31-yard-line in its final three possessions, and Bravvion Roy blocked a potential game-tying 48-yard field goal with 3:33 to play. Baylor has won 10 straight games dating back to last season, which is tied for the second-longest winning streak in school history. It is seeking just its second 9–0 start in school history.
As for TCU (4–4, 2–3), it took a 34–27 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday due in large part to the defense's inability to stop the run. TCU gave up 301 rushing yards, including touchdowns of 92 and 62 yards to running back Chubba Hubbard. It was just the fifth time an opponent rushed for 300 or more yards against TCU since 2000. However, don't sleep on the Horned Frogs. They won their only game against a ranked opponent this season, beating then-No. 15 Texas, 37–27, at home on Oct. 26. The Horned Frogs are seeking a fifth straight win over the Bears after grinding out a 16-9 road win last year.
