The Baylor Bears and Texas Longhorns are preparing to wrap up seasons that didn't go according to plan.
The in-state rivals both had their eyes on competing for a Big 12 championship in 2022. As the two squads prepare for a showdown on Black Friday, those hopes have pretty much been dashed: The Bears are sitting at 6-5 overall and 4-4 in conference play, while the Longhorns (7-4, 5-3) still have a shot at getting to the conference title game. Texas needs to beat Baylor and have Kansas State lose to Kansas on Saturday. Stranger things have happened.
