ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - When Baylor first played Texas Tech in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium four years ago, the game provided an experience the Bears weren't going to get anywhere else that season.
It was a regular-season finale with no chance of playing in a bowl game.
Baylor coach Art Briles says that was the first time the team experienced what a bowl game would be like.
Fourth-ranked Baylor (8-0, 5-0 Big 12) has played in bowl games each season since and now is a national title contender.
The Bears, fifth in the BCS standings, take a school-record 12-game winning streak into Saturday night's game against Texas Tech in the NFL stadium.
Texas Tech was 7-0 and 10th in the BCS standings before losing its last three games.
