The Baylor Bears began the season unranked, but after roaring out of the gate with a 15-0 record (3-0 Big 12), they were named the number one team in the country by The Associated Press on Monday. This is the first time that Baylor has ever been ranked #1 in men’s college basketball, and they are very deserving of the honor. They’ve knocked off some of the country’s heaviest hitters, taking down #4 Oregon, #24 Michigan State, #10 Louisville, and #7 Xavier.
But unfortunately for Baylor, their time as #1 may be short-lived, as they have an extremely tough test ahead of them in the West Virginia Mountaineers. The #10 ranked Mountaineers are 13-2 (2-1 Big 12), and they went 2-0 against Baylor last season. They also have a knack for upsetting top-ranked teams at home, as they beat Kansas 74-63 last year. The WVU Coliseum will be rocking, and Bob Huggins’ sloppy ass will have his team pressing like crazy, making this a must-watch ballgame.
Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s break down all of the ways you can catch the action.
