Baylor’s Homecoming Win Streak In Serious Jeopardy

Baylor’s Homecoming Win Streak In Serious Jeopardy

It’s no secret that Baylor’s program has trended down in a big way. Saturday at 8 p.m. EST Baylor’s homecoming win streak will be in serious jeopardy. Baylor has won seven consecutive homecoming games, dating all the way back to 2010. Additional to that there have been 7 straight seasons where Baylor won at least 7 games. That streak is also on the line Saturday night. The loss would result in Baylor missing a bowl game.

The streak started off in 2010 with a 47-42 win over Kansas State. The following year Baylor took down Missouri 42-39. In 2012 Baylor crushed Kansas 41-14.

2013 was a Big 12 title year for Baylor when they defeated Iowa State 71-7. In the 2014 homecoming game Baylor crushed Kansas 60-14. 2015 homecoming Baylor defeated Kansas 45-27. The 2016 homecoming game was Baylor’s last regular season victory when they took down Kansas 49-7 and ran their record to 6-0 before losing 6 straight games.

The Bears all-time record in homecoming games is 46-43-4. This game is very different from past homecoming games when compared to the contests against basement dwelling Kansas and Iowa State teams of the past. West Virginia is a 9.5 point favorite when they enter Waco. A win over the No. 23 Mountaineers will not come easy, but if it were to happen it would certainly be a hallmark moment of the 2017 season.
