DALLAS Teams

Joe Lunardi Senior Writer, ESPN.com 

Baylor is in a similar must-win situation hosting Kansas State. The Bears, like TCU, risk falling to 2-6 in the Big 12 with a loss tonight. Teams do recover from that kind of conference deficit, but not very often. K-State, meanwhile, has won three of four and sits just two spots out of the latest NCAA projection.

Huge game tonight for TCU. As good as they were in starting 12-0, the Horned Frogs still have to win some Big 12 games. A loss to WVU would drop them to 2-6 in the conference, and only one team has ever reached the NCAAs as an at-large that far under .500 in league play.

Jason Witten on what it means to be playing in his 11th Pro Bowl: "I consider it a privilege to play alongside the best of the best in our league and look forward to getting to Orlando. I enjoy being around the young stars of the game. I learned a lot in my early years by observing some older veterans in not just how they practiced but in how they conducted themselves off the field. Hopefully, I will be able to give back some of what I have experienced."

Yu Darvish has at least one five-year offer on the table, according to a source, but he has yet to receive an offer enticing enough to take the plunge. The Cubs, Twins, Rangers, Dodgers and Brewers all continue to monitor Darvish's market. Most baseball observers think he'll be the first upper-level free agent starter to sign, with Jake Arrieta, Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb next in line. With pitchers and catchers set to report to spring camps in three weeks, time is growing short for everyone.

Jason Witten has been named to the Pro Bowl to replace Philadelphia's Zach Ertz. It is the 11th Pro Bowl in his career, tying him for the most in Cowboys history with Bob Lilly. He has made the Pro Bowl in 2004-10, 2012-14 and 2017.
