Doesn’t matter who’s running the show. Baylor’s offense just keeps rolling.
The Bears racked up 692 total yards in a 69-3 blowout of Wofford on Saturday night. They did on the ground and in the air with as many backs and receivers as they wanted.
On a weekend when far too many Big 12 teams struggled to score points, that was no issue for Baylor. Bryce Petty was about as good as the Bears could’ve hoped in his first career start, throwing for 290 yards on 18-of-23 passing and two touchdowns before letting Seth Russell take over in the third quarter.
Russell went 4-for-4 for 99 yards and a score. The Bears had four backs rush for 40-plus, led by Lache Seastrunk with a ho-hum 111 yards and two touchdowns. Ten different Bears receivers recorded catches on the night, with Tevin Reese going for 97 yards and a score on five receptions.
Petty and Co. put this one away quickly with 28 points in the first quarter and finished with 389 yards passing and 303 rushing. The Bears can take just as much comfort in getting a stout showing for their defense, which forced three turnovers and never let the Terriers make it a ballgame at any point.
Next up for Baylor is a Buffalo team that gave Ohio State much more of a fight on Saturday, losing 40-20.
