Opening weekend was rough for the Baylor Bears and it potentially trickled into week two against Utah football.

Action Network’s Brett McMurphy broke via X that the Bears will be without starting quarterback Blake Shapen for 2-3 weeks while he heals an MCL injury he sustained to start the 2023 football season.


The Utes will be without starting QB Cam Rising for the second straight week. Bryson Barnes and Nate Johnson will hold down the spot in his absence.
