2. Baylor Bears

Record: 3-0

Previous Ranking: 2 (Trend: — )

Last Week: Baylor 70, Louisiana 7

This Week: Bye

Next Week: vs. West Virginia

Baylor is averaging 751.3 yards of offense per game.

Yes, it is against three pushover teams – Wofford, Buffalo, and Louisiana-Monroe – but, still, 751.3 yards per game.

Baylor has this week of before starting the Big 12 season with West Virginia at home, a team that is really struggling now. While K-State is down from where it has been the past two seasons, they probably still pose the Bears first true test of the season, especially since the game is at Manhattan.

If Baylor can prove itself against K-State, then there is a really good chance they could be the team to steal the Big 12 title away from Oklahoma State. Unfortunately for Baylor, the Cowboys game is on the road, but their offense appears to be unstoppable right now.

Circle October 12 on your calendar to see if Baylor is for real.
