Baylor Bears Game Notes

Another round of the Jeff Grimes Bowl is set to take place when Baylor travels to Provo to take on BYU. As a former offensive coordinator for the Cougars, Grimes departed Kalani Sitake’s staff after the 2020 pandemic season to take the same role under Dave Aranda in Waco. Grimes was essential in the maturation of Zach Wilson and now leads an offense that won the Big 12 last season.

BYU Cougars Game Notes

Junior Puka Nacua and senior Gunner Romney are expected to miss the game. BYU coach Kalani Sitake had said earlier in the week that they would be game-time decisions. Romney and Nacua accounted for 60% of BYU's returning receiving yards, according to ESPN Stats & Info data.
