“I think any time you play an in-state team, you’re fighting for in-state bragging rights. All of our players know each other really well so it bumps up the level of competition. I’ve said from the beginning, we’re going to have a target on our backs because we’re Baylor, we’re a good team, we play in a big-time conference. We’re not the underdog anymore. We’re not going to surprise anybody. We’ve known their staff for a long time, so we know each other and we know what we’re each trying to do. That’s part of the fun of the game.” – Baylor head coach Paul Jobson


After postponing Sunday’s match with Houston Baptist, the Bears tentatively do not have a match on the schedule until Friday, Sept. 1, vs. UTSA in Waco.
