WHAT'S AT STAKE
A chance for Baylor, which leads the nation with 69.7 points a game, to avenge that wild 70-63 loss at West Virginia last season in the league's highest-scoring game ever. The Bears head into their Big 12 opener with seven wins in a row, the league's longest winning streak. West Virginia is the only team that has already played two Big 12 games. The Mountaineers have alternated wins and losses so far, and are coming off a surprising 30-21 win over then-No. 11 Oklahoma State.
The quarterbacks who weren't in last year's game. Bryce Petty, a Baylor backup to Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and then record-setting Nick Florence (581 yards passing, five TDs vs. WVU last year), is the Big 12 leader with 334 yards passing per game after three college starts. QB Clint Trickett will make his second start, even after hurting his throwing arm last week while throwing for 309 yards. Trickett is West Virginia's third starter already this season in the post-Geno Smith era. Paul Millard started the first two games before Ford Childress got two starts before giving way to Trickett last week. Smith threw for 656 yards and eight TDs against Baylor last year.
