The fifth-ranked Baylor Bears are about to find out if they are for real. So will everybody else.
For all their ridiculously big offensive numbers, their highest ranking in 60 years and getting into November as the Big 12's only undefeated team, the Bears are about face some big tests.
Baylor is home Thursday night to play its first ranked opponent this season, No. 12 Oklahoma. That starts a season-ending stretch when the Bears also will play 25th-ranked Texas Tech, 15th-ranked Oklahoma State and Texas, the only other team without a Big 12 loss.
Bears quarterback Bryce Petty says it's a challenge the team has been waiting for all season.
Baylor has won a school-record 11 games in a row since losing at Oklahoma last year.
