Baylor Scores Fast & Scores A Lot
WACO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Baylor scores fast and scores a lot.
The starters for the 20th-ranked Bears have played less than 25 minutes combined in two lopsided victories. They have already scored 101 points, an average of four points a minute.
Two years after Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy and then a record-setting season by Nick Florence, the Bears are the nation’s highest-scoring team with 691/2 points a game. They’re also the top offense with 737 total yards a game.
The 14 touchdown drives with quarterback Bryce Petty and the starters have averaged 1 minute, 19 seconds each, with only one taking more than 2 minutes. Petty has completed 80 percent of his passes, throwing for 650 yards and four touchdowns — with zero interceptions.
Lache Seastrunk boldly claimed that he would win the Heisman in his junior season — and the former Oregon Duck is not disappointing. In two games, Seastrunk has rushed for 261 yards and five touchdowns while averaging 9.3 yards per carry.
Baylor plays its final non-conference game Saturday at home against Louisiana-Monroe.
The Bears’ six-game winning streak is the longest in the Big 12.
