WACO, Texas - The 108th Battle of the Brazos between Baylor and Texas A&M on Oct. 15 will be televised live on FX at 11 a.m. CDT, the Big 12 Conference announced Monday.
No. 25 Baylor (3-1, 0-1) suffered its first loss of the season Oct. 1 in heartbreaking fashion, 36-35, at Kansas State. Robert Griffin III threw for five touchdowns for the third time this season, while senior IR Kendall Wright set a Baylor single-game record with 201 receiving yards.
The game against long-time rival Texas A&M will be Baylor's seventh consecutive nationally televised Big 12 Conference game, dating back to last season, and its fifth televised game this season (one on ABC, one on ESPN, one of FSN, one on Fox Sports Southwest).
No. 24 Texas A&M (2-2, 0-1) suffered its second loss of the season over the weekend, 42-38, to No. 18 Arkansas in the Southwest Classic at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
The most-played series in Baylor football history, Texas A&M holds a 67-31-9 advantage in the all-time series, which dates back to 1899. Baylor and Texas A&M have played every season since 1931, save the 1943 and 1944 seasons when Baylor did not field a team due to World War II.
Baylor, which is 3-0 at home this season, hosts Iowa State on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. CDT on FSN.
