Baylors unstoppable offense is safest bet in Big 1
Baylor quarterback Seth Ru sell took a bootleg around the seal block of 410-pound tight end LaQuan McGowan for a score that gave the Bears a 49-21 lead in the second quarter against Texas Tech on Saturday.Yet none of that describes the absurdity of the Colin Moran Jersey
Bears' offense. No. 5 Baylor beat Texas Tech 63-35 at ATT Stadium on Saturday, and made a few things clear along the way. WHAT WE LEARNED: | | Baylor has #AmericasTopOffense. Baylor might have #CollegeFootballHistoryTopOffense. It's more-than-enough to get the Bears into the College Football Playoff if they avoid a slip-up before the Big 12 tri-meet with Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and TCUin November. What's different about Art Briles' offensive machine this time?Balance. The Bears entered the day as the only FBS team that ranked in the top 10 in both rushing offense and pa sing offense. Baylorracked up 251 pa sing yards and 248 rushing yards in building the first-half lead against the Red Raiders. The Kevin Newman Jersey
Bearsfinished with 368 rushing yards and 312 pa sing yards. Just another 680-yard day at the office.Add it up, and it takes a while, and Baylor averages 63.8 points and 745.3 yards through four games.Ru sell (15 of 23, 286 yards, 4 TDs, INT) is playing at a Heisman Trophy level. So is receiver Corey Coleman (7 catches, 101 yards, 3 TDs), who has 11 receiving TDs this season. Shock Linwood (20 carries, 221 yards, two TDs) provides the balance on the ground. McGowan is the world's largest fullback/tight end. Baylor's offense is going to chase two hallowed FBS offensive team records. They'll flirt with Kyle Crick Jersey
624.9 yards per game, set by Houston in 1989. They'll also make a run at 56.0 points per game, set by Army in 1944.Make any metaphor you want. It's basketball on gra s. It's a track meet. It's the next-best thing to Chad Kuhl Jersey
Texas Motor Speedway.It's the fastest team in the FBS right now, and Baylor looks the best among the top five teams right now.We know the next two questions. What about the defense? Who have they played? Baylor allowed 636 yards to Texas Tech, but that doesn't matter when you lead by at least three TDs the entire second half. The Bears' offense is its best defense, and that will be enough to play in shootouts against TCU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma Stateand everybody else in the Big 12.As for somebody else? Sure, the Bears lost the Fiesta Bowl and Cotton Bowl Cla sic against UCF and Michigan State the last Josh Harrison Jersey
two seasons, but the combined score of those lo ses was 94-83. You're not going to beat the Bears with a ball-control offense. They can hang 40 maybe even 50 on any team in the FBS.If Baylor can win the Big 12, then it'll play a shootout in the College Football Playoff this time. The high-profile showdowns against Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and TCU in Novemberwill providemore than enough light, maybe more than the SEC West race, to do that.Will Baylor get a chance to be something more than #AmericasTopOffense?It's almost just as absurd to think they won't get achance to show it.
