Baylor Preparing For "BlackOut"

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN) -- Baylor is buzzing over Thursday's match up against the # 10 Oklahoma Sooner's. And BU is trying to get fans even more excited my announcing a "BlackOut" for the game. 

Fans attending the game are asked to wear all black to match the Bears' all-black uniforms. Hopefully creating an intimidating atmosphere, that will give Baylor a greater home field advantage.

"I'm sure it's going to affect the game," said sophomore Chase Wommack. "I grew up in Waco and now I'm a student, I always came to Baylor games so obviously I never expected anything like this." 

The school has been selling a special black T-shirt since last week at their bookstore. They actually had to reorder more shirts to meet the demand.

Students flocked into the book store all day to buy their shirt, and support their team.

"We just wanted to be part of the team," said alumna Ashley Newberry. "Everybody's doing it so why not just jump on board and be uniform as a body of students," added Sophomore Hunter Ward.
     
Baylor will also be selling these special shirts outside of Floyd Casey Stadium before the game. And inside the stadium during the game.

But it's not just the university embracing the blackout. Hotel Indigo has something special in store of their guests coming into town for the game.

"We decorate the hotel every game day that whole weekend we keep it all full of Baylor colors," said Jacquelyn Baumann, the hotel's director of sales. "But since it's blackout we want to really embrace that and take some special measures for it."

And everyone in Waco is hoping the bit of theatrics, helps bring the bears a W this Thursday.

    (KCEN) – While the homeless veteran count is dropping nationwide, Killeen and Temple are seeing a spike in the number of homeless veterans – and it's not just individual veterans. “We're seeing more homeless families, and we've seen an increase in that over the last few months because of the downsizing of the military,” Paula Wood said. “It's very sad to look a family in the eye and say do you have a friend or family member you can stay with because it's going to take a month to get you re-ho...More >>

    (NBC) -- A federal judge Friday threw out new Texas abortion restrictions that would have effectively closed more than a dozen clinics in the state. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel sided with clinics that sued over one of the most disputed measures of a sweeping anti-abortion bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry in 2013. The ruling stops new restrictions that would have left just seven abortion facilities open in Texas by Sept. 1; there are currently 19 providers in Texas, according to th...More >>
