Baylor Hired PR Firm To Help Gain Spot In College Football Playoffs

Baylor University is taking steps to guarantee a spot in the College Football Playoffs–by hiring a PR Firm, according to Jake Trotter of ESPN.

Baylor (10-1), ranked No. 7 according to last week’s poll, is placed two spots behind TCU (10-1). Baylor beat TCU 61-58.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said the Conference would declare Baylor and TCU as co-champions should both teams win this weekend, reports Sports Illustrated. Baylor hosts Kansas State while TCU hosts Iowa State this Saturday.

Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw made a statement on Monday regarding Baylor’s accomplishments this season according to ESPN:

“It is an incredible platform for us to make our case. We would be a Big 12 co-champion with a tiebreaker over TCU. It would give us three top-15-quality wins. We would have the strongest resume among those under consideration.”

“The whole concept of a playoff is determining a champion on the field. If it’s on the merits of what was done on the field you would think if there’s already been a game it should weigh heavily.”

Looks like Baylor won’t be going down without a fight. The new rankings are announced Tuesday night on ESPN at 6 p.m Central Time.
