WACO (February 25, 2013) -- Baylor has added a home game vs. Wofford to its 2013 schedule after the cancelation last week of its previously scheduled game at SMU, Baylor officials announced Monday. The Bears will now open the season on Aug. 31 against the Terriers at Floyd Casey Stadium.
The game will mark Baylor’s first against Wofford in football. The Terriers, an FCS program located in Spartanburg, S.C., won the 2012 Southern Conference championship and finished 9-4.
The addition marks a seventh home game on the Bears’ 2013 schedule in the final year of play at historic Floyd Casey Stadium. Baylor plays four games on the road as well as the 2013 Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Shootout against Texas Tech at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Dates for all games are subject to change for television purposes, and kickoff times will be announced at a later date.
The final game at “The Case”, Baylor’s football home for the past 62 seasons, is a Dec. 7 contest vs. in-state rival Texas. The Bears are scheduled to open their beautiful new Baylor Stadium on the Brazos River in 2014.
Baylor, champion of the 2012 Holiday Bowl, returns 13 starters from an 8-5 season in which its offense set or tied 37 school records and two NCAA marks. The Bears enter 2013 on a four-game winning streak and have won back-to-back bowl games for the first time in 25 years.
