Baylor’s Homecoming Football Kickoff Set

WACO (October 22, 2012) -- Baylor’s Nov. 3 Homecoming football game against Kansas has been set to kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT and will be televised live nationally on FSN, the Big 12 Conference announced Monday.

The Kansas game will be the 19th time in the last 20 games that Baylor has played on national television, and it makes five games this season on the FOX Sports networks. Baylor plays on FSN at 6 p.m. Saturday at Iowa State.

The Bears previously played on FSN against SMU and TCU, and Baylor played on Fox College Sports against Sam Houston State and on FX at West Virginia.

Baylor's Homecoming Parade is the largest in the nation, and Baylor is among the first five schools nationally ever to celebrate homecoming. The Bears held their first homecoming in 1909 and it became an annual event in 1930 when the name was changed from "Good Will Week" to Homecoming.

Baylor is 37-39-4 all-time in Homecoming games, including a 36-35 win in 2006 against Kansas in the Bears’ only Homecoming meeting with the Jayhawks.
