With the start of the season just two weeks away, Baylor, the defending Big 12 champions, got its first opportunity to strap on the pads in an intrasquad scrimmage at brand new McLane Stadium Saturday morning.

Take a look.

Consider this somewhat of a trial run for the Bears' home opener against old Southwest Conference rival SMU on August 31.
