ESPN.com's Jason King writes that undefeated Baylor will face a difficult atmosphere when it visits BYU's Marriott Center Saturday afternoon.

"There are still a lot of people who aren't buying into No. 7 Baylor — mainly because of its poor track record on the road. The Bears won just two games away from the Ferrell Center last season, which explains why they were four-point underdogs at Northwestern last week. Scott Drew's squad took the challenge to heart in a merciless 69-41 beatdown of the Wildcats. But that test won't be anything like what Baylor will face Saturday in Provo, where BYU will be looking to upset the Bears in the Marriott Center, which will be one of the toughest environments Baylor faces all season. If Perry Jones & Co. win this one, it will be hard not to take the Bears seriously."

Fans can watch the first episode of BYU Basketball with Dave Rose on KSL-TV, where Rose previews the game.
