WACO, Texas (AP) — No. 11 Baylor and Kansas were on opposite ends of near upsets in their last games.
Those outcomes were indicative of why the Bears are trying to get to 6-0 for the fourth straight season, and the Jayhawks are still trying to get out of the Big 12 cellar while serving as Homecoming opponents their next two road games — the first being Saturday on the banks of the Brazos River against Baylor.
Before having last weekend off, the Bears (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) needed a 17-point comeback in the fourth quarter at Iowa State. Their only lead in a 45-42 win came when Chris Callahan kicked a 19-yard field goal on the final play of the game, an outcome that certainly got their attention.

Kansas (1-4, 0-2) was oh-so-close to what could have been a season-boosting upset of TCU. The Jayhawks had a nine-point lead in the fourth quarter before missing three field goal attempts, the last in the final seconds of a 24-23 loss after the Frogs had kicked a go-ahead field goal. That stretched Kansas' conference losing streak to 14 games.
