Although some might consider rugby an "extreme sport", most would not pick a small conservative Baptist school in Texas to be one of the front runners for the National Championship. This is not the case however when the Baylor Bears take the field. Winners of the 2000 National Championship in rugby, Baylor always produces a wonderful time for all. Matches are normally on Saturdays at 2pm, and vary throughout the school year.
Equipment: All you need here is a hat and some sunglasses. Admission is free, and Dr. Pepper is highly encouraged as the drink of choice!
Baylor has made a major rennovation to the banks of the Brazos River in the past few years, and one of the beautiful reconstructions that has been done is the Baylor BallPark.
The stadium is modelled after the Auburn University Stadium, which is traditionally ranked as the nicest in the country.

Cameron Park Trail
The Cameron Park Trail system consists of over 20 miles of multi-use trails that range from stairs, to twisting ascents of cliffs overlooking the Brazos and Bosque Rivers to easier, more leisurely trails. Walk a small part of the trail or challenge yourself and try the whole thing. Some people (with more energy than me) like to run up these stairs.
