(June 6, 2014) The Baylor football team has ended a nearly 40-year drought.
For the first time since 1975, the Bears are featured on the cover of Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine. That year, Grant Teaff was entering just his fourth season as head coach of the Bears.
Three members from the defending Big 12 champions, head coach Art Briles, quarterback Bryce Petty and wide receiver Antwan Goodley, are featured on the cover, standing in front of the new McLane Stadium.
“It was a slam-dunk pick for the cover this year,” Texas Football managing editor Greg Tepper said. “The cover of Texas Football always aspires to reflect the biggest story in the state that year, and there’s little doubt that the Bears are the biggest story in Texas. With the meteoric rise of the long-downtrodden program thanks in large part to consummate Texan Art Briles, plus a new stadium, Baylor is — for truly the first time — the football center of the Lone Star State.”
