When two of the nation’s top teams square off in Waco, Texas, No. 4 Baylor will attempt to end the program’s nine-game losing streak against the Big 12’s marquee team, No. 3 Kansas. Coach Scott Drew’s Bears (22-4 overall, 9-4 Big 12) have only won four of their past 12 games against top-five teams over the past several seasons. This marks the fifth top-10 matchup for Bill Self’s Jayhawks (23-3, 11-2) this year. KU enters the game at Baylor 4-0 versus top-10 opponents.
