Baylor Continues To Completely Dominate Its Opponents
Baylor decimated Iowa State by a final of 71-7, making it the fourth time in six games this season that they've scored 70+ points.
And in one of those other two games they scored 69.
After beating up on Wofford, Buffalo, and Louisiana-Monroe to start the season, many people questioned whether the Bears were for real. After all, they hadn't played Big 12 competition up to that point.
Well, after scoring 73 points against West Virginia, it was clear that this team could do it against tougher competition. The lone game that Baylor hasn't hit the 69+ mark came last week in a 35-25 win over Kansas State.
In terms of statistics, it should shock no one that the Baylor offense is through the roof in pretty much every category. Passing, rushing, points scored.....this team is near the top of the NCAA in all of these thanks in large part to the play of quarterback Bryce Petty and running back Lache Seastrunk. It's just ridiculous how many weapons they have at their disposal on offense.
It's been an absolutely incredible first half of the season for Art Briles' team. But, after next week's trip to play Kansas, the schedule does get considerably more challenging.
Here's the lineup after Kansas: Oklahoma, Texas Tech, at Oklahoma State, at TCU, and Texas.
The good news for Baylor is that the most difficult games of that group will all come at home. Trips to Oklahoma State and TCU won't be easy, but it should be less daunting than a trip to any of the other three would be.
With that schedule, it is unlikely that we'll see many more games where the Bears reach 70. So we better enjoy their domination of Kansas next week because it may be their last for a while. I mean, they can't be this good on offense every single game the rest of the way, can they?
But then again, a bad day for Baylor offensively is still better than a great day for most teams.
