Charlie Brewer sets Baylor record for completions in loss to Texas Tech

Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer suffered his first career loss as a starter in a 38-24 loss to Texas Tech. However, he also earned a spot in the record books.

Brewer completed 43 of his 63 pass attempts against the Red Raiders to set the Baylor record for completions in a game with 43. No other Baylor quarterback had completed even 40 passes in his career. His 63 pass attempts also set a Baylor record.

Bryce Petty and Blake Szymanski previously tied for the record with 36 completions. Petty accomplished the feat in a 42-41 loss to Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 1, 2015. Szymanski set his mark in a 43-23 loss to Colorado on Oct. 6, 2007.

For comparison, Robert Griffin III never completed more than 33 passes in a game. Nick Florence never had more than 32 completions. Seth Russell’s career high was 26 completions. Keep in mind, Brewer is still a freshman.

Brewer was playing in just his sixth career game and second start. Over those two games, he has completed 66 passes for 732 yards and 6 touchdowns. He’s well on his way to becoming Baylor’s quarterback of the future.
