On Sunday, the Bucs hosted Baylor University, a team the Bucs hadn't played in almost 5 years. Historically, the Bucs, over its 23+ year history, have played Baylor more than any other team, and many of the games have been great match-ups.

Baylor a solid Div. A team has put up some impressive numbers against its Div. A opponents as well as some solid OOC teams.

Both teams played the day before, and this may have been the most telling story as the game progressed. While SU has 35 guys on the roster, 34, of which made it into the game on Sunday, Baylor only has 14. SU had played Trinity the day before, and Baylor had played UT.

The game started out with both teams feeling each other out for the first quarter, with Baylor striking first with 3:54 left to go. However, SU answered back with two quick goals of their own right before the end of the first stanza to take a 2-1 lead into the second.

Again, both teams played a solid second quarter with the Bucs capitalizing on a perfect fast break with only 6 seconds left to go into half-time up 3-1.

The entire first half, Baylor ran with the Bucs toe to toe, no matter who was in, and we pushed it. By the middle of the third, however, fatigue began to show. SU was picking up more ground balls, getting back in transition faster, and controlling the ball more.

Baylor did not stop running with us, however, and played with everything they had until the final whistle, scoring their last goal with 16 seconds left in the game.

This was a great opportunity for the Bucs to play a solid Div. A team. Baylor capitalized on missed passes or lost ground balls, and recovered quicker than most teams we have seen this year on defense.

We appreciate the Bears coming to SU to play us, and hope we will have the opportunity to return the favor next year. The 9-2 win was exactly what SU needed to move its overall record to 5-1.

This next week, the Bucs are playing 2 historic games with National implications. The Bucs are traveling to Searcy Arkansas to play #7 in the nation Harding and #19 St. Louis University within 14 hours of each other. This will be a monumental undertaking. These will be two of the biggest games the Bucs have ever been in on the national arena, as this is the first time, the Bucs are traveling outside the state to play ooc games.

An out of conference win or two against two high caliber teams just might give the LSA B some respect it has been wanting. One thing is for sure, just as both St. Louis and Harding will be ready, so will the Bucs. The outcomes will go along way to show us where our program is nationally and what work we still have to focus on, before we head back to end the regular season with 3 conference games in a row, all at home, starting off with the always extremely tough UTA.
