Baylor is one of seven teams in the top 25 still undefeated, but of those seven, only the Bears and the Murray State Racers of the Ohio Valley Conference have yet to beat a ranked opponent.
Scott Drew's young team will have a chance to change that on Wednesday Dec. 28 in Dallas, when they face No. 15 Mississippi State at the American Airlines Center. The Bulldogs, with 6'11 Arnett Moultrie and 6'10 Renardo Sidney, are one of the few teams with the size and athleticism to match up with Baylor's talented front-line.
Baylor remains the highest ranked team in the Big 12, although undefeated Missouri (No. 8 in both polls) is right on their heels. Kansas dropped (No. 17, No. 18) after a shocking home loss to Davidson, while Kansas State jumped into the Top 25 for the first time all season after winning the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii.
