The Bears will play either the No. 4 seed University of Texas Longhorns or the No. 5 seed University of Missouri Tigers at 7:30 tonight.

Texas: 6-8-3 overall 4-3-3 in the Big 12

Baylor tied the Longhorns 0-0 on October 11 in Austin. The Bears outshot the Longhorns 22-8, but still did not get the victory. The Longhorns have not won a game since October 25, which was a 1-0 win over Missouri.

Waldrum said: 'If we play Texas, I think, by the fact that they have nothing to lose and everything to gain they are really going to come after us. When we played them at their place, they really sat back and defended a lot, but at this point, they will come out and play. They need to win the tournament to get in (to the NCAA tournament).'

Missouri: 9-8-1 overall 5-5 in the Big 12

Baylor defeated the Tigers 1-0 on October 4 in Columbia. Junior forward Molly Cameron scored for the Bears off a Julie Goin assist. The game was very tight, as Missouri out-shot Baylor 7-6.

Waldrum said: 'Missouri is very good offensively. They have three players up front who have been scoring a lot of goals for them this year. The part where they have had some trouble is defensively. They have given up some things that they don't need to give up.'
