The Baylor quarterback who succeeded Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III with a record-setting season of his own has decided not to pursue a possible NFL career.
Glasco Martin ran for three touchdowns, Nick Florence threw for two scores and ran for another, and Baylor overwhelmed UCLA 49-26 in the Holiday Bowl on Thursday night.
When the Bears and Red Raiders play again at Cowboys Stadium on Saturday, Florence will be the starter.
Oklahoma’s stingy secondary is getting another chance to slow down a 3,000-yard passer. On Saturday night, No. 13 Oklahoma will try to put the kibosh on West Virginia’s Geno Smith.
Baylor quarterback Nick Florence has never tried to be like Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback he succeeded. Still, Florence has numbers that are very comparable to what Griffin did.
Once again, the Baylor offense scored 50 points on an opponent. Once again, it wasn’t enough to win.
The Baylor Bears are looking for Nick Florence to be more than a second-half fill-in for Robert Griffin III this season.
Every Big 12 team has areas that need to be addressed before the players depart for the summer. It’s no surprise that quarterback tops many lists.
