Baylor coach Art Briles quickly dismisses the idea of his Bears defending their Big 12 championship.
The trophy they got for winning their first Big 12 title last season is theirs to keep.

Once the league's perennial last-place team, Baylor has four consecutive winning seasons for the first time since 1985-88.
Robert Griffin III became the school's only Heisman Trophy winner three years ago, and the Bears move into a new campus stadium this season.
Quarterback Bryce Petty, the Big 12 preseason offensive player of the year, is back for an offense that had 619 total yards and an NCAA-record 52.4 points a game last season.
