For the first time in school history, Baylor will be the host site for ESPN's College Game Day Saturday.
Head coach Scott Drew says "it doesn't get any better or bigger than ESPN's College Game Day tomorrow." The voice of the Bears agrees, "It's huge. When College Game Day comes to town, Baylor and Waco will be the center of the college basketball world."
Between early morning giveaways, breakfast events, and special family activities, one dad tells us his kids can't wait. He says, "My kids are all excited. Their actually wanting to make some poster boards tonight, to hold hopefully and get on TV on ESPN."
Saturday's game marks the longest standing rivalry for both Baylor and University of Texas. Baylor's all time leading scorer, LaceDarius Dunn, only needs five more points to be the Big 12's career leading scorer.
Even if you don't have tickets, you can watch the historic game Saturday night at 8.
