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.

Predictably, the players and coaches were excited about the experience – from walking on the bridge over the Brazos River to dressing in the awesome locker room to finally running out of the tunnel.

Take a look.

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