WACO, Texas (AP) - While often overlooked because of the outrageous numbers put up by its high-scoring offense, fourth-ranked Baylor also has the Big 12's best defense.

Baylor has seven senior starters who have learned third-year defensive coordinator Phil Bennett's system. The Bears are allowing only 15 points and 306 total yards a game. That is best in the league and top 10 nationally for a group that gave up 37 points and nearly 500 yards a game while among the nation's 10-worst defenses the previous two seasons.

Senior safety Ahmad Dixon says the big difference is having knowledge of the system, and being able to play fast and fearless.

The improved defense is a big reason the Bears are 8-0 for the first time in school history.

They play Texas Tech on Saturday.
