Saturday at Memorial Stadium there will be a reunion on the field. one that Baylor defenders Geoff Nelson and Chris Francis hope occurs over and over throughout the game and one Marcus Herford and Dezmon Briscoe will most likely try to avoid at all cost at least until the final seconds tick away.

The players journey to Lawrence, Kan., started at the same place - Cedar Hill, Texas. They may be Jayhawks and Bears now but before that they were Longhorns, donning the Red and Black of Cedar Hill High.

When the players meet on the field they may be enemies until that final whistle blows, at least one guy will be looking on with a smile on his face regardless of what happens

"I tell you I'm excited. It's been fun watching college football," said Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire. "I got to see Dezmon score last week against K-state and I got to see a couple of highlights Chris made a couple of tackles a couple of weeks ago. So it's fun."
