Watch: (7) Baylor vs. (19) TCU

With Baylor's Jarrett Stidham out the rest of the season with a broken ankle, one-time third-stringer Chris Johnson will be the starting QB.

No. 7 Baylor at No. 19 TCU is expected to get underway at 7:20 ET after a short weather delay. The field has potential to get sloppy and muddy after enduring consistent rain throughout much of the day. Those conditions could limit the explosiveness of players like TCUs Aaron Green and KaVontae Turpin along with Baylors Corey Coleman. The running game, for both teams, will be key.

Chilly, wet night in Fort Worth, Texas. Field has held up well considering the constant rain. Sloppy conditions could definitely be a factor as No. 7 Baylor takes on No. 19 TCU.
