Baylor answered a lot of questions with Saturday night’s 35-24 win over Oklahoma State.

The Bears are still really good.

Up until then, Baylor (in the post Art Briles era) had only beaten up on a soft non-conference schedule. With an impressive Big 12 win on their resume, the Bears will now head to Ames next week for an 11 a.m. kick vs. Iowa State, who won its first win of the season this week – a 44-10 rout over San Jose State.

Vegas likes the Bears in this one – by a lot.

Baylor opened as a 17-point favorite over the Cyclones on Sunday afternoon to be specific.
