No. 11 Baylor tries for 6-0 again, Kansas looking for boost

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.

"You have to bring your 'A' game every game," quarterback Seth Russell said. "And I feel like as long as we can focus on what we can do and execute at a high level, we can win ballgames."

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.
