Baylor, OSU QB transitions will be key
By ESPN.com staff
Football Outsiders' Brian Fremeau took a look at QB transitions and battles from across college football, but two Big 12 teams are the transitions who are most crucial.
It shouldn't be too difficult to figure out which ones.
Baylor's Robert Griffin III and Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden are gone, and both accounted for more than 64 percent of his team's offense, far higher than any other players.
Fremeau breaks down the transition in his piece for ESPN Insider , but here's a quick snippet:
Among the top teams from last season, Baylor and Oklahoma State have the most difficult challenges heading into next season. Led by Brandon Weeden, the Cowboys ranked sixth in points per possession last season and racked up 550 yards per game, third-most nationally, which ranked one place behind Baylor. Weeden was third in the nation in total yardage, with Griffin ranking one spot ahead of him.
