Don’t underestimate Baylor football

While enjoying one of the longest home winning streaks in team history is nice, the TCU football team will still need to keep a wary eye on Robert Griffin III, Baylor’s quarterback, as TCU hosts the Bears Saturday.

A sold out game is marvelous news, as it further proves the need for the $105 million renovation of Amon G. Carter Stadium. If TCU can fill out the stadium consistently throughout the season, that will grant them greater TV ratings. It will elevate TCU into the national spotlight and start the long voyage to becoming a college football powerhouse on par with schools like Texas and Alabama, which have no problem selling out games months in advance.

Crowd noise levels and emotions should approach or even supersede the atmosphere of the TCU-Utah game last year. After opening the season with a 30-21 win over Oregon State and a 62-7 subjugation of Tennessee Tech, TCU fans and players will have plenty of fiery energy to spend on the Baylor game. After all, the Tennessee Tech roll-over was TCU’s 15th straight home win and the continuation of the third-longest home win streak in Mountain West Conference history.

The Bears, however, have plenty of momentum as well as they come into this game after a 34-3 victory over Sam Houston State at home to open the season and a 34-6 win over Buffalo last week. This Saturday’s game will definitely be an explosive one between two old rivals. As long as TCU continues to win and continues to play high quality football in the long term, the promise of good games and great television exposure will continue to draw sizable crowds.
