If you’d asked me which team we’d have the best record against in the streak (besides colorado and nebraska) I’d not have guessed Baylor. Maybe I’m thinking conference tournament losses, but it’s surprising, and impressive, that we’ve lost to them only 1 time. Of course knowing the coaching advantage we have in that matchup, maybe it isn’t too surprising!
