The majority of the Baylor student body is expected to attend the game in Waco this weekend against Oklahoma.

The Bears are hosting GameDay on Saturday when the Sooners visit, and athletic director Mack Rhoades expects it to be packed. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Craig Smoak on Tuesday night, Rhoades said 70% of the student body would attend the game after 11,000 tickets were handed out.

This game is really shaping up to be a fun one, and I can’t wait to watch them battle Saturday night on ABC.

This might be the biggest game in Waco in my lifetime. I can’t remember the last time the Bears had this big of a stage.

Now, they’re undefeated, a playoff spot is on the line and the fans are responding.

This is setting up to be a game for the ages. If Baylor wins, they’ll be in complete control of their playoff fate.

If they lose, well, then they’ll have been exposed as all hype with very little substance.

This is why we play the game, gentlemen. This is why teams take the field. Waco is going to be rocking Saturday night as we find out what the Bears are all about.

70% of the student body being in the house is epic, and I hope it lives up the hype.
