WACO -- After three weeks away, the Baylor Bears will have a much needed home game this Saturday.
The bears have dropped their last two road games to A&M and Oklahoma State, making their record 4-3 overall and just 1-3 in conference play.
After suffering a blowout against OSU 59-24, the Bears are looking for a victory against Missouri Saturday with the help of the home crowd.
"When you're at home, you certainly have to take advantage of the home field because you know, the surroundings are familiar. You know, the crowds supportive. You don't have to alter your snap count and it allows you to, especially on the offensive side of the ball, work at a rate of speed that, you know, you're comfortable with," said Baylor football coach Art Briles.
Even with home field advantage, the bears host a tough Missouri team coming in with a lot of momentum after upsetting A&M last Saturday 38-31.
