Buckle Your Seatbelts for This Game

ESPN offers a dandy Saturday afternoon when a pair of top-10 teams tangles in Waco, Texas.

The Missouri Tigers, ranked No. 7 in the country, will provide the opponent for No. 3 ranked Baylor.

Both teams are 17-1 and their only loses are to Kansas schools. Missouri fell to Kansas State in Manhattan and Baylor lost to Kansas in Lawrence.

Look for this one is become an up-and-down affair with the overall speed of Missouri against the length of Baylor.

Baylor obviously needs to defend its home court. Some question if Missouri has played a tough enough schedule and whether it will have the composure to secure a signature road win.

The winner will definitely stay in the race for the Big 12 Conference crown. Kansas is in first place and undefeated in the league. Missouri must still play the Jayhawks twice. Baylor has a home contest remaining with Kansas.

So if you watch this game, be sure and buckle your seatbelts, it could be a wild ride. It just may have the feel of a NCAA tournament game.
