I have a strange feeling of confidence going into this game. They say it’s really difficult to beat the same team twice in a year.

I just feel that we have gotten better every single week. I feel the last time we played them because of the early lead we were much more conservative in the 2nd and made it look a lot closer than it was.

We both have the same pressure of winning the championship.

We have added pressure of making the CFP

Baylor will be playing with a chip on their shoulder to avenge the loss.

Hoping OSU isn’t over confident that they will do it again.

I think BU is capable of the upset but I see the Pokes playing a sound game and winning comfortably.

How are you guys feeling about it?

Baylor doesn't have Caleb Williams and the offense has come a long way since the last time we played Baylor. If Bohanon isn't 100% I think it will be a blood bath.

One of their best players on defense, Terrell Bernard didn’t play the 1st game. Him and Pitre are probably their best blitzers. Looks like they have started running Smith more and throwing deep to their other RB Ebner. We will have to prepare for both QBs, Shapen is a better thrower, Bohanon a better runner. They had a real wake up call last week, they will be ready to play for sure.

I think both teams have improved since the first game. Biggest question is who is their QB1 this week? Either way we should win this game, probably a good game if Bohannan plays, probably not much of a game if he doesn't.

But Aranda seems like a heck of a coach, so not counting them out by any means.

They are closer to home...have played more games at the location I would think (maybe?). They have an outstanding head coach and a very good hardnosed defense. We will have to earn this one. Bring it like it's Bedlam! Get er done!

I'm just so pleased that neither ou nor texas is in this game! Go Pokes!!

Against TTech, when QB Shapen had to go out for a play or two to shake off a tough hit, they brought in QB3 instead of Bohannon even though Bohannon was dressed. If Bohannon plays on Saturday, there's no way his hammy is anywhere near 100% and he won't have any scramble or run ability.

I think it’s exactly like Bedlam. It’s all about us and what we do.

Come out and play defense like we know we can.

Don’t give them points via turnovers or penalties that extend drives.

We win comfortably.

We are better across the board. Lean on that defense, don’t make mistakes.

Shapen is not built like Caleb Williams either so if he does play I think we will be able to get quite a few hits on him and actually be able to get him to the ground. Hopefully we can bottle up their run game again.

Amazing to think that we got 6 sacks on Caleb and we think our defense could've done better.

My point had nothing to do with Tech, it was that Baylor had a close game last week and I think they will be more focused this week. Someone else brought up that Tech wasn’t good and I showed that Tech is not a terrible team and has had some good games.

I think you may have mistaken my attempt at humor for seriousness. But, along those lines, TT is 6-6 on the year and they lost to Texas which hardly everyone anyone did.
