Baylor has taken a lot of flack for its very easy scheduling practices, which likely kept the Bears from edging out Ohio State for the final spot in the 2014 College Football Playoff. The Bears rarely exert themselves too much in non-conference play, but that may change, at least by 2020. Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork confirmed to SEC Country that he is in discussions with Baylor to play in 2020.
“We are speaking to Baylor about a game in 2020, but nothing is finalized,” Bjork said to SEC Country. “Can only confirm that we are talking, and we are hopeful we can get an agreement done very soon.”
Ole Miss is no stranger to marquee non-conference games. This season, the Rebels open up against Florida State in Orlando. Baylor and Ole Miss would be a great one. We just hope to see Baylor set up games like that more often.
