The No. 9 Baylor Bears will get their first matchup against an opponent that could give them a challenge when they host the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday, November 20th. The game will get started at 1:00 p.m. ET from the Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas.
Baylor is expected to take a step back from last year’s national championship season and while this is still a top-10 program, it will be interesting to see how they look against quality teams. The Bears are 3-0 with blowout wins over Incarnate Word, Nicholls and Central Arkansas.
Stanford will enter with a 3-1 record and won consecutive games against San Jose State and Valparaiso following their lone loss of the season against Santa Clara last week. Through four games, Harrison Ingram is scoring 14.5 points per game to lead the team.

The Bears are projected to have one of the best defenses in the country, and they will enter Saturday’s game at No. 12 in adjusted defensive efficiency. Stanford rates as a much better defensive team and than they do offensively, and the pace could play a big factor. The Bears will speed things up, but the Cardinal’s best chance at keeping it close is to slow it down and play at their pace. They should do enough to limit possessions and keep this total under 141 points.
