|D-Stew looks at TN preps|

A lot of things happened in 1997, Bill Clinton was President, the world mourned the loss of Princess Diana and Mother Theresa. The Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl, the Bulls won the NBA title and the Florida Marlins won the World Series Hong Kong was returned to Chinese rule after 156 years of British rule, a stamp cost 32 cents and the cholesterol lowering pill Lipitor was introduced to the world.
It was also the last season that Baylor beat arch-rival Baylor. The Red Raiders finished just 3-8 in 1997 but defeated the Blue Tornado twice that season. Then McCallie rolled off 11 straight wins which in turn cost Baylor head coaches in Fred Hubbs and David Bibee their jobs.
For these two proud programs it’s all about beating your rival. The series record is close at 37-35-3, but in the last decade, the Blue Tornado has dominated as only three games in the streak had been decided by less than 10 points.
In fact McCallie had outscored Baylor 348-129 during the streak, but that all changed for Baylor last Friday night, as the Red Raiders snapped the streak winning 24-10.
Baylor took an 8-3 lead on a Jacob Huesman touchdown run and upped the lead to 14-3 after Sam Williams scored from 17 yards to give the Red Raiders a 14-3 halftime lead.
Williams, coming back off a hamstring injury, had his second 100-yard game of the season as he rushed for 118 yards and QB Huesman was a duel threat as he ran for 84 yards and passed for 75 yards in the win.
