Baylor football nearing spring game

WACO, Texas The Baylor football team will play Saturday in the annual Green and Gold Spring game at McLane Stadium.

The Bears have set up this spring a little differently than in the previous few years. The Bears have shortened their overall spring camp but held more practices per week. Matt Rhule says that's to more closely simulate a fall game week.

The Bears have some veteran guys who are not seeing much practice time this spring due to injuries. That has allowed the younger Bears to get more reps and that's paying dividends. The coaches and players say they see progress this spring and they see definite improvement.
