Waco parties as Baylor hosts Oklahoma for Big Noon Kickoff

FOX's Big Noon Kickoff came to town and the Baylor Bears showed them a good time

WACO, Texas — The Baylor Bears hosted Big Noon Kickoff on FOX on Saturday as the Bears hosted the University of Oklahoma. 

In what may be the Sooners last trip to Waco as a member of the Big 12, the two teams certainly put on a show. 

It started with the pregame festivities which included a live show featuring college legends like Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, Brady Quinn, and even Mr. Sooner himself, Bob Stoops. 

It was the first pregame show hosted outside of McLane Stadium since College Gameday came to town in 2019. 

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity here at Baylor, it’s cold, but we gotta come out here early to support," Baylor freshmen Brady and Clay said. "It’s a great opportunity.”

Even without the pregame hype, fans were excited for the rivalry game against Oklahoma. 

“We were freshman during the 2019 season when we lost to them multiple times, so for us, its personal," said juniors Megan, Zoey and Kenzie." 

Big Noon Kickoff has never come to Waco, but it certainly didn't disappoint. 

“We didn’t know what to expect with Fox Big Noon coming but this has been awesome so far," the junior said. 

That group mentioned that they wanted an upset, with No.13 Baylor finishing on top of No.8 Oklahoma. 

That is exactly what they got. 

The Bears knocked off the Sooners 27-14.
