We have finally reached bowl season! In this game it’s the Texas bowl at NRG Stadium between the Baylor Bears and the Vanderbilt Commodores.
This is the first meeting ever between the two teams.
What a turnaround it has been for the Baylor Bears this season after having one of the worst seasons in program history last year.
The Bears needed a victory in their last game of the season against the TCU Horned Frogs and it was the offense that carried them to a 35-24 victory.
That followed back to back games where the offense really struggled so it was a good sign that the offense was right back on track.
At quarterback the Bears are led by Charlie Brewer who has thrown for 2635 yards, 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
In this game the offense needs to be good. Chances are this game won’t finish 13-10, so the offense needs to get out to a fast start.
On the other side of this matchup is the Vanderbilt Commodores who really weren’t impressive early in the season but a strong finish to the season, winning three of the last four games led them to this bowl berth.
The offense was really struggling early in the season, but in each of the last three wins they scored 36 points and that was the difference.
On the defensive side the Commodores are the better team giving up 25.1 points per game and that although that isn’t terrible, the defense has been worse towards the end of the season.
At quarterback the Commodores are led by Kyle Shurmur who will be playing his last game of his carrer and nothing would be better than to go out of this game with a win.
