Baylor picked up a nationally televised road game with NCAA champion Kentucky, adding again to the Bears' solid schedule for the 2012-13 season. Bears coach Scott Drew said Baylor will also play at Gonzaga in a return game from two years ago in Dallas, and also will host Northwestern and BYU.
The Bears are one of the marquee teams in the Charleston Classic with Murray State, Colorado, St. John’s and Dayton. Auburn, Boston College and the College of Charleston are also in the field.
Baylor will get plenty of power-rating pop for this schedule, especially with the addition of Kentucky. No one should be surprised that the return game is in a neutral setting at Cowboys Stadium as part of a unique doubleheader with the schools' women's programs in December 2013.
