PROVO, Utah – BYU/Baylor has the potential to be a special series when the two schools are both in the Big 12 Conference.

Baylor has been an original member of the Big 12 from its inception in 1996, while BYU is set to join the Power 5 league in 2023. Last year, when BYU traveled to Waco to face the Bears for the first time since 1984, Baylor rolled out the Big 12 carpet for BYU.

BYU was celebrated at Baylor’s homecoming parade. In addition, the Bears issued flyers to assembled media in the press box that said, “A united future in the Big 12 Conference.” Baylor also gave BYU a plaque currently hanging in BYU’s equipment room featuring the BYU logo and the Big 12 logo.

BYU plays Baylor school song in the Carillon Bell Tower

So now that Baylor is in Provo, BYU is returning the hospitality.

BYU played the Baylor school song, “That Good Old Baylor Line,” at the Carillon Bell Tower on campus.

A Baylor fan tweeted a video inside BYU’s bell tower. Which led to Baylor University’s official Twitter tweeting, “Appreciate the hospitality, @BYU!”

Tonight’s matchup on the gridiron is one of the top games on the week two college football slate. Both teams enter the game in the AP Top 25 rankings. BYU comes in at No. 21 and Baylor checks in at No. 9.

The Cougars are looking for their first victory against a Top 10 team in Provo since they defeated No. 1 Miami in 1990.

Kickoff between the two future Big 12 foes is at 8:15 p.m. (MT) and will be televised on ESPN and heard on KSL NewsRadio (102.7 FM, 1160 AM).
