The Bears are gearing up for their final home game of the year against conference rival, TCU. 

Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer will be eligible to play the entire game despite being ejected in the second half of the Iowa State game last Saturday. 

"I shouldn't have put myself in that position in the first place, but I am glad I get to play this week," Brewer said. 

Brewer and the rest of the Bears are now focused on making the seniors' last time at McLane a memorable one. 

If Baylor is able to beat the Horned Frogs, not only will they become bowl eligible, but they'll be undefeated in Big 12 play at home this year, something Head Coach Matt Rhule describes as "taking back McLane."

"Those guys stayed here through a lot of tough times, and could've easily just packed their bags and went somewhere. But, they decided to stay which I have the utmost respect for and so does the rest of the team," Brewer added. 

The seniors hope to leave a good legacy with Baylor.

"It's a huge sense of pride. I want the fans to see something great that we left here, and we owe it to them," Ira Lewis, the Bears' senior defensive tackle, said.
