The #5 team in the nation looks to avoid a road upset when they take on Texas Tech Saturday afternoon.
Baylor put a number on the Rice Owls last week as they ran up and down the field on them scoring touchdown after touchdown.
Texas Tech will look to avoid a bit of a hangover as they literally had TCU on the ropes last week, but a tipped pass led to a Horned Frogs game winning touchdown with less than a minute to play.
The Baylor Bears haven’t broke stride from their crazy offensive firepower from the recent years.
The Bears put up a 70 spot in Rice Saturday afternoon en route to a 70-17 win. Baylor picked up a ridiculous 793 yard of offense and QB Seth Russell was once again at the center of all that.
QB Seth Russell compiled 366 yards and has picked up right where Bryce Petty left the Bears program. Russell has thrown for 995 pass yards already and 15 touchdowns in the Bears’ 3 games thus far.
Along side Russell, RB Shock Linwood continues his dominance as well. Linwood has racked up 121.0 rush yards per game through the Bears’ first 3 contests. Last week, Linwood surpassed that total with ease as he rushed for 158 yards and a touchdown.
The Red Raiders proved one thing last week, that their offense can keep up with anyone in the nation. They’ll have that daunting task once again as they can be expected to be in the middle of another shootout.
Texas Tech was one play away from pulling off the home upset, but a tipped pass was caught in the back of the endzone for TCU.
On the final play of the game, Texas Tech lateraled the ball about 7 different times and came about 15 yards short of pulling off a miracle.
Still, the Red Raiders have nothing to hang their heads about as their offense is one of the best in the nation. Texas Tech is averaging 53.8 points a game, 197.2 on the ground, and 397.3 through the air per game.
QB Patrick Mahomes has tossed for 1421 yards this season to go along with 11 touchdowns. His completion percentage sits at 63.4.
