After winning the Big 12 last season, Baylor regressed in 2022, finishing with a 6-6 record. The Bears ended their season on a three-game losing streak, but had big wins against Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas Tech during their .500 regular season campaign.
Air Force’s offense didn’t put up flashy numbers, but its defense was one of the best in college football, holding opponents to 5.1 yards per play. The Falcons finished 9-3 overall and 5-3 in the Mountain West.
