Is Baylor's offense for real? We'll find out Thursday.
Week 11 Matchup: No. 10 Oklahoma (7-1) at No. 6 Baylor (7-0), Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1
The Bears could score with just about anybody this season.
Through seven games, the team ranks No. 1 in scoring (63.9 PPG), No. 1 in total offense (717.3 YPG), No. 1 in passing (417.3 YPG) and No. 7 in rushing (301.1 YPG). Furthermore, Baylor has put up 59 or more points in all but one game this year.
What could possibly go wrong?
Well, for starters, the team hasn’t really played anybody of note. In fact, the team’s seven opponents have a combined record of 28-34.
The Sooners are easily the Bears' toughest opponent to date.
Thus far, Oklahoma’s defense has been pretty stout. The unit ranks No. 14 in scoring (18.8), No. 10 in total defense (314.3 YPG), No. 28 against the run (134.8 YPG) and No. 10 against the pass (179.5 YPG).
On Thursday, we’ll get a good, long look at just how good this Baylor offense is.
But more importantly, we’ll find out whether the team deserves to be a BCS title contender or not.
