Floyd Casey Stadium
When Baylor and Texas kick off their regular season finale, the last game ever at Floyd Casey Stadium, they could be playing a de facto Big 12 championship game.
It is the final game after 64 seasons at Floyd Casey Stadium, where the Bears are 5-0 against Top 25 teams the past three seasons and have won nine straight games since October 2012.
The Bears move next season to a $260 million stadium being built on the Waco campus, along the Brazos River and busy Interstate 35.
Baylor said that its final game before moving to a new stadium is sold out. The December 7 finale against Texas includes more than 3,500 seats that are usually covered and unused.
Waco leaders have cleared the way to help finance Baylor’s planned $250 million on-campus football stadium.
Baylor hopes to have the 45,000-seat facility ready for the 2014 season. The Bears currently play at Floyd Casey Stadium, which was built in 1950 and has maintenance issues.
Baylor University officials have five stadium builders working on proposals for a new football stadium being considered for the Baylor campus in Waco.
