They haven’t played anybody of note yet, but they are winning in such a way that you have to take note.

This week Baylor hung 70 on Turner Gill’s old team with 781 total yards of offense. Lache Seastrunk averaged 8.8 yards per carry in his 150 yard, three touchdown day and Bryce Petty looks like the best quarterback in the conference.

Baylor at Kansas State on October 12 is going to be the key game to see how “for real” this team is, but I’ll go ahead and tell you now that this is a top 10 team in the country right now.
