TEMPLE, Texas — Baylor Homecoming is one of the university’s biggest celebrations of the year. The three-day event includes bonfires, one the nation's oldest and largest collegiate homecoming parades, and of course football.
This past weekend’s festivities lived up to all the hype. Hundreds lined the streets of Waco for the parade Saturday morning as thousands more watched on the 6 News livestream.
More than 47,000 fans watched the Baylor Bears take the win over Texas Tech in double overtime and the half-time show grabbed all of our attention.
The Baylor Golden Wave Band put on quite a show to honor the Women’s Basketball 2019 National Championship team. During the half-time routine, the band played “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor as they got into formation. The band members formed two female basketball players with ponytails—one of them dribbling a basketball, the other set up to receive a pass. Between the two Lady Bears was a moving “BU” logo, also formed by Golden Wave band members. As the receiving Lady Bear gets the ball, the passing player transforms into a basketball goal that receives the money shot.
The routine ends with the band spelling, “Champions” on the field.
“Your Lady Bears had a memorable season, crowned National Champions,” the announcer said as the crowd went wild.
What a show Baylor Golden Wave Band, what a show!
