Baylor football broke through with its first win of the season on Nov. 4, posting a 38-9 win over the Kansas Jayhawks.
The win came just one week after Baylor scored just 7 points in a 38-7 loss to Texas at home. But in a year that has been such a roller coaster for the Bears from start to end, one trend has stayed steady for Baylor in 2017.
Speed equals scoring
When the Bears are quick, the Bears score — and we’re not talking about physical speed from individual players.
Twenty-one of Baylor’s 29 touchdown drives this season have been under two minutes. Eleven of those 21 drives lasted 48 second or less.
On the flip-side, only one of Baylor’s 19 field goal drives this season was completed within two minutes on the playing clock.
Baylor is no stranger to up-tempo offenses, though the wins haven’t been coming as they used to in what is a full rebuild for the Bears.
But if the teams it to make the most of its final three games of 2017 — especially against the high-flying Texas Tech offense on Saturday — there will be a need for speed in the offensive gameplan.
