The fourth Texas Bowl features a matchup of two Bowl Championship series teams — with 7-5 Baylor taking on 6-6 Illinois. The Bears are the designated "home team" and will be the clear fan favorite in this Reliant Stadium matchup. Baylor coach Art Briles is plenty familiar with Houston from his days as the University of Houston's coach and he brings a dynamic playmaker to town in quarterback Robert Griffin.
This is Baylor's first bowl game in 16 years, adding to the excitement, and likely the size of the crowd.
Tickets for the game start at $30.
