If you want an example of an almost picture-perfect offensive performance, look no further than what Baylor did against Buffalo in the first half of their game on Saturday.
The Bears put up 501 yards of offense on 41 plays, scored 56 points while possessing the ball 9:59, went five-for-five on third down conversions, averaged 19.9 yards per pass and 7.8 yards per rush and collected 20 first downs.
Quarterback Bryce Petty was 12 of 15 for 298 yards and two touchdowns. He had throws of 61, 44 and 83 yards. Tailback Lache Seastrunk rushed for 150 yards and three touchowns on 17 carries.
Again, this was all in the first half as the Bears jumped out to a 56-13 lead over Buffalo.
For all the talk of Oregon’s offensive prowess, the best offense in the country might reside in Waco. Thanks to offensive mastermind Art Briles, it’s the reason Robert Griffin III won a Heisman Trophy and why Petty and Seastrunk might contend for one as well.
More importantly, it’s the reason the Bears are a legitimate contender for the Big 12 title.
