No quarterback in the Big 12 has put up better numbers than Baylor's Bryce Petty this season.
Petty currently has the second-best quarterback rating in the entire country at 249.5. He trails only Jameis Winston of Florida State, who's earned himself a 252.2 rating.
Petty also ranks third in the country in completion percentage at 80 percent.
What's perhaps most impressive about Baylor's quarterback is the amount of points that he has led his offense to. Last week against Wofford, the Bears had 56 points in the first half.
Baylor head coach Art Briles said at Big 12 media days that he expects Petty to break school records for passing. Per the Dallas Morning News:
Bryce, a reasonable expectation, first thing that popped into my mind is break every Baylor record there is offensively, which is what we expect him to do and what he plans to do. I don't know what expectation anyone would have other than doing that, which equates to winning every football game we step on the field with, which needs to be his expectation along with ours.
Well, it looks like Petty is well on his way to doing just that.
