Sep 15, 2012; Auburn, AL, USA; Louisiana Monroe Warhawks quarterback Kolton Browning (15) drops back to pass against the Auburn Tigers in the first half at Jordan-Hare Stadium.  Mandatory Credit: John Reed-US PRESSWIRELouisiana-Monroe isn't exactly a football powerhouse, but they gave Baylor fits last night in a near-upset that might have people taking a look at their unusual offense.

UL-Monroe played two quarterbacks at the same time, and used the dual threat to confuse the Baylor defense so much that they were forced to call timeouts an inopportune times, and had lots of trouble stopping the Warhawks offense.

As you can see in the video, lefty Kolton Browning and righty Cody Wells both were in the backfield at the same time.

Wells handed off to Browning, who made a first-down pass while on the run towards his left. On the next play, they basically did a mirror image, having Browning hand it off to Wells, who rolled right and completed a pass.

This gives the UL-Monroe offense a lot of flexibility, but imagine how much better it could work at a more high-profile school with more talented quarterbacks, who can also play other positions.

Quarterbacks like Cam Newton, Tim Tebow and others could turn this system into an unstoppable force, with their already transcendent abilities. Imagine someone like Tebow having the option to either run the ball, or hand it off to a superior passing quarterback.

It might not be long before we see this at a big-name BCS school. With the right personnel, it could be pretty exciting to watch.

Here's the video:

Didn't Baylor win that game 47-42? It looked like UL-Monroe would steal it leading 35-34 but Baylor took over in the 4th qrt.
