Baylor in Waco plus a tiny little helper.

Steve tried this Week 1 and it was a fiasco — I’m taking a stab at it in opposition to one in all our favourite squads. Rice plus almost 2 TDs at residence. Owls want one win to go bowling. A win may be quite a bit to ask for right here, but when they’ll compete for 60, perhaps we will too.
