The Bears may have yet to play a defense that is even remotely respectable. However, that doesn't take away from how good the team's offense has been.
Just take a look at some of the feats the unit has already accomplished.
By putting up 73 points against West Virginia last weekend, Baylor became the first team to score at least 70 points in three straight games since LSU in 1930. Not only that, but the Bears' 864 yards of total offense also broke a single-game Big 12 record and are the most by any FBS team in 10 seasons. Furthermore, Baylor has six quarters with at least 28 points—no other FBS team has more than two.
In fact, the team is the only one in the nation that hasn't gone three-and-out.
The Bears have quarterback Bryce Petty (72.8 CMP%, 1,348 YDS, 10 TD, 1 INT, 229.6 rating) and running back Lache Seastrunk (53 CAR, 589 YDS, 8 TD) to thank for that.
Petty has been phenomenal through the air, rarely throwing a bad pass. He's had no trouble finding his receivers and has even found the end zone three times on the ground. Not surprisingly, Petty's rating leads the entire nation.
On the other hand, Seastrunk has been completely dominant on the ground. He averages 147.3 yards per game and has rushed for over 100 yards in eight straight games—the longest active streak in the FBS.
With those two on point, it'll be tough to slow down this Baylor offense.
