Baylor quarterback Baker Mayfield will have a lot of competition at quarterback this season.
But he will also get plenty of playing time with his teammates.
Mayfield and his teammates will get a shot to show what they can do in the preseason opener against West Virginia.
The Big 12 is home to three teams that are ranked in the top 25 nationally in scoring defense and are looking to become bowl eligible.
Mayfield, who completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,824 yards and 17 touchdowns, and running back Bryce Love have a combined 1,922 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns.
He and Love have also caught 10 passes for 116 yards.
The Baylor Bears have lost just once in Big 12 play this season, beating Oklahoma State, 27-21, in the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 31.
They had just three turnovers in the game and were limited to just 34 yards on 17 carries.
Mayfields touchdown against Oklahoma State was a play that was going to come back to haunt him.
The quarterback had a bad first read, and he had to come up with the ball himself.
Mayfins throw on the first play of the second half was intercepted by a safety.
He had the ball, and then he looked up to see the play on the sideline.
He took the next step, looked down and saw his teammate on the ground, and threw a perfect pass to Love.
The play was so perfect, it’s the best play of Mayfields career.
The touchdown gave the Bears a 20-17 lead.
But on the next play, Baylor scored the next touchdown.
Love made a diving grab at the goal line and was able to catch the ball for a touchdown.
Mayfields first TD came on a 14-yard run.
The Bears have played four conference games, and they will be looking to get their first bowl win since 2011.
The team is coming off its first bowl appearance since 2009.
The Big 12 has three teams ranked in AP Top 25, with West Virginia being the only other team in the Top 25.
The Bears are the only undefeated team in all three conference games.
The schedule is a tough one, with road games against Oklahoma, Texas and Oklahoma State.
They play the Sooners and Sooners only, which will be the last game in a week and a half.
