The Baylor Bears have a No. 7 national ranking, a shiny 8-0 record and continue to try and prove to America that their team is for real. They'll have an interesting non-conference test against the 8-2 BYU Cougars who are looking to prove that they are more than the Jimmer Fredette All-Stars from Provo.
BYU is riding a four-game winning streak and are 4-0 at home this season. Noah Hartsock will be asked to keep up the scoring load for the Cougars as the phenom Perry Jones III and his vast array of talents will look to wreck havoc on the shaky BYU frontcourt.
Game Date/Time: 2:00 PM ET, December 17, 2011
Location: Marriott Center, Provo, UT
Odds: Baylor +4.5
Bears: ESPN Radio 1660-101.3
