Briles on No. 3 Baylor: 'Best team we've had'

The tougher tests await down the road for No. 3 Baylor Bears, but coach Art Briles has seen enough of his Bears to know this is his best team.

Brandon Chatmon ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor RB Shock Linwood has been the Big 12's best runner this season. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Linwood is averaging 4.42 yards after contact per rush. His ability to run through tackles has helped him average 9.42 yards per carry. Even in a conference full of stars at QB and WR, Linwood will deserve Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year consideration if he continues to put up big numbers.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

In surrendering more than 40 points a game right now, it's not unthinkable that Kansas could challenge Louisiana-Lafayette’s 1997 defense for the ignominious FBS season record of 50.3 points allowed per game. Especially given the Jayhawks' remaining schedule includes the nation's top three scoring teams, including Baylor this weekend.
